More Shiny

Another Shiny app, this one taking data on U.S. unemployment from Quandl and generating graphs and tables describing it. I was mainly trying to update my Shiny knowledge based on the new(-ish) version 0.4.


This app is on GitHub, so it should be possible to run it with:

runGitHub('shiny_unemployment', 'atbradley')


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

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.
