Shiny Gadget: Fit Distributions

September 1, 2018

(This article was first published on R on Thomas Roh, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

The ‘Fit Distributions’ shiny gadget allows easy automated diagnostics for
fitting univariate distributions. It reads in numeric vectors in the global
environment, and uses MLE to estimate the parameters of the selected distributions.
The visual outputs are GOF statistics, density plot, pp-plot, and qq-plot. You
can also adjust the number of bins for the histogram. It currently only supports continuous distributions.


x <- rnorm(1000)
y <- rweibull(1000, 1)
df <- dataframe(x, y)
