Build Beautiful Shiny Apps – A Live Coding Session at BostonR

BostonR meetup

Thank you to all the attendees who joined Kamil Żyła’s live coding session at the BostonR June meetup! If you missed out on the chance to participate, don’t worry! Check out his recorded presentation below. If you prefer a blog format, our in-depth shiny.fluent tutorial can be found here, or begin with your first shiny.fluent dashboard here

For more Shiny video tutorials from the Shiny Experts at Appsilon check out our Youtube channel.

In the shiny.fluent tutorial video, Kamil presents the concept behind Appsilon’s new open-source package – shiny.fluent. He also discusses the functionality of shiny.fluent and Appsilon’s shiny.react, which enables the porting of React-based components and UI libraries, like Microsoft’s Fluent. Discover how UI factors into the success of Shiny projects and the power of having a beautiful, enterprise-grade look and a rich set of components without losing Shiny’s quick development speed.
