RStudio has released a new package for R. Shiny allows R developers to build simple interactive Web-based interfaces for R scripts, using only R code (no JavaScript development required!). You can see some examples of Shiny in action in this blog post, and there are more details about Shiny's capabilities in this tutorial.

Shiny was first announced to beta testers back in July at the JSM 2012 conference. RStudio's Joe Cheng gave several demonstrations of Shiny in action to the audience, which I captured in the video below:

 

Shiny has evolved in the four months since then, and I look forward to seeing the interesting R-based applications that people can create with it. And if you're looking to create interactive R apps that support large numbers of users from a secure Web Services platform, also take a look at RevoDeployR (details in the white paper, R for Web Services with RevoDeployR).
