Shiny, R, d3 Adaptation of Mike Bostock’s Calendar

December 13, 2012

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

The idea with all the posts was to learn both d3 and shiny by iterating through multiple experiments.  This example adaptation was my quickest yet at about 30 minutes.  Mike Bostock had done all the hard work, and all I had to do was write about 40 lines of R code to download the index data through getSymbols and Yahoo!Finance and deliver that data to d3.
