htmlwidgets: Create interactive web charts in R

Posted to Software  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

If you don’t want to bother with JavaScript but want to publish interactive graphics for the web or use interaction to explore your data, htmlwidgets might be for you.

HTML widgets work just like R plots except they produce interactive web visualizations. A line or two of R code is all it takes to produce a D3 graphic or Leaflet map. HTML widgets can be used at the R console as well as embedded in R Markdown reports and Shiny web applications.

Use existing widgets that let you visualize with popular JavaScript libraries such as D3 or Leaflet. Or, create your own.
