Rickshaw d3.js from R with rCharts

June 11, 2013

Shutterstock’s open source Rickshaw provides a very nice tutorial to get started building interactive time series d3.js charts with Rickshaw.  I just could not resist rebuilding the tutorial but this time ENTIRELY in R with the amazing packages slidify and rCharts.  I have embedded the tutorial below, but it will probably look much better if you go directly to the Github pages version.

The slidify and rCharts author Ramnath Vaidyanathan has done an incredible job and continues to perfect these fine tools.  They completely transformed my workflow and output by allowing both dynamic and interactive components that I can combine into a beautiful document.  Be sure to see him present to this NYHackr meetup  on June 17, 2013.
