It started as a Christmas present and ended up to be a fun case study on the productive boost of the open source community. Use R and shiny to hack the LEGO Art Beatles set to become a Stones set!
Assume that you have some new data that you want to explore. The new CRAN version of the ‘ExPanDaR’ package helps by providing a (customized) R notebook containing all building blocks of an exploratory data analysis with a few clicks. Let me show you how to do this by taking a quick look at country-level CO2 emissions.
Closing down for the year, I finally wrapped up a new ‘ExPanDaR’ version that now allows exploring all sorts of data interactively and generates notebooks containing the analysis on the fly. So here comes my little Christmas present for the wonderful RStats community!
When starting a course you want to learn something about the background of your students. What do you do when the course is too large for an introduction round? Run a shiny survey!
The new version of the ‘ExPanDaR’ package will include the option to export your explorative data analysis to an R Notebook. This Notebook can then be used to extend your analysis. Let me show you how to do this.
Classroom experiments are a great way to communicate insights and shiny is a fantastic tool to develop interactive data displays. Linking the two together, you can build a unique experience for your students!
