Shiny

I finally got around to experimenting with Shiny, RStudio's new(-ish) web application framework.

BabyNames
My first app just generates a simple plot from the Social Security baby names data aggregated by Hadley Wickham.

I'm really impressed with how easy it is to develop a working app in Shiny.  If you already have a script that generates a plot or some analysis of your data, less than 50 lines of code can give you a simple, web-based interface to explore it.
