Data can be very powerful, but it’s useless if you can’t interpret it or navigate through it. For this reason, it’s crucial to have an interactive and understandable visual representation of your data. To achieve this, we frequently use dashboards. Dashboards are the perfect tool for creating coherent visualizations of data for business and scientific applications. In this tutorial we’ll teach you how to build and customize a simple Shiny dashboard.

We’ll walk you through the following:

  • Importing library(shiny) and library(shinydashboard)
  • Creating a server function
  • Setting up a dashboardPage() and adding UI components
  • Displaying a correlation plot
  • Adding basic interactivity to the plot
  • Setting up navigation with dashboardSidebar()
  • Using fluidPage()
  • Data tables with library(DT)
  • Applying dashboard skins
  • Taking advantage of semantic UI with library(semantic.dashboard)
