Shiny version 0.4.0 is now available on CRAN. The most visible change is that the API has been slightly simplified. Your existing code will continue to work, although Shiny will print messages about how to migrate your code. Migration should be straightforward, as described below. It will take a bit of work to switch to the new API, but we think it’s worth it in the long run, because the new interface is somewhat simpler, and because it offers a better mapping between function names and reactive programming concepts.

Version 0.3.0 of Shiny is now available on CRAN. This version of Shiny has several new features and bug fixes.

We’ve updated the tutorial page with documentation about these and other features. Read more →

Our solution is Shiny Server, the application server for Shiny. Read more →

Introducing Shiny: Easy web applications in R

2012-11-08 Joe Cheng
Say hello to Shiny, a new R package that we’re releasing for public beta testing today. Shiny makes it super simple for R users to turn analyses into interactive web applications that anyone can use. These applications let you specify input parameters using friendly controls like sliders, drop-downs, and text fields; and they can easily incorporate any number of outputs like plots, tables, and summaries. No HTML or JavaScript knowledge is necessary. Read more →
