R Graph Gallery widget in R Bloggers

October 8, 2011

The R Bloggers website, maintained by Tal Galili, aggregates blogs (including mine) from many people of the R community.

Tal and I have been wondering about how to tight R Bloggers with the gallery, supporting each other’s website. To that extent, I’ve made a quick and dirty widget, using the jquery cycle plugin that is now on the right sidebar of R bloggers, inside the related sites box.


The widget first chooses 20 items from the gallery at random, and then cycles through them.

This is an initial design made specifically for R Bloggers, but it is quite likely that I will improve on this and make the widget more generic so that other website can use it to advertise for the gallery.
