Add your thoughts here… (optional)
I’ve been interested in building a web app using R for a while, but never put any time into it until I was informed of the Shiny package. It looked too easy, so I absolutely had to try it out.
First you need to install the package from the command line .
The version in the tutorial uses a two R files, won the front end(ui.R) and the other being the server side (server.R). However, I wanted a refresher in HTML, so I built it with one HTML and one R file. The structure is defined here.
For the data, I’m using MLS (home sales) data for Philadelphia, which I’ve been sitting on for quite a while. The thought behind the app is to be able to examine monthly average listing prices to monthly average prices, and in the end it turned out rather well.
