Andy Kirk (@visualisingdata) & Lynn Cherny (@arnicas) tweeted about the Guardian Word Count service/archive site, lamenting the lack of visualizations:
This gave me a chance to bust out another Shiny app over on our Data Driven Security shiny server:
I used my trusty “
Google-Drive-spreadsheet-IMPORTHTML-to-CSV” workflow (you can access the automagically updated data here) to make the CSV that updates daily on the site and is referenced by the Shiny/R code.
The code has been gist-ified, and I’ll be re-visiting it to refactor the
data.frame creation bits and add some more charts as the data set gets larger.
