Interact. Analyze. Communicate.
Take a fresh, interactive approach to telling your data story with Shiny. Let users interact with your data and your analysis. And do it all with R.

Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R. You can host standalone apps on a webpage or embed them in R Markdown documents or build dashboards. You can also extend your Shiny apps with CSS themes, htmlwidgets, and JavaScript actions.
Shiny combines the computational power of R with the interactivity of the modern web.
Here is a Shiny app
Shiny apps are easy to write. No web development skills are required.
