A Shiny App Goes Viral
I am not sure how many of you have seen this Business Insider article. It is basically about a shiny app created by Joshua Katz as NC State. It is really fun playing with shiny app.
With nearly a million facebook likes this web app built using R with the shiny is a clear demonstration of how effective and professional shiny can be.
Though surprisingly even though the app is hosted by amazon web server it seems a bit laggy. Given the immense traffic the article is generating I hope Joshua has some plan to pay amazon.
Though I cannot be sure because I do not have access to the code, the amazing thing is that the whole server side code developed by Joshua was probably no more than 100-200 lines of R script.
