The State of Shiny Survey: An Essential Tool for Data Scientists


The adoption of Shiny, the R package for building interactive web applications, is growing. As a leader in R Shiny development for enterprises, we’re asking you, fellow users of R and Shiny, to discuss the current state of Shiny in 2023 and its outlook for the future.

We would like to invite you to take part in our “State of Shiny 2023” survey. Appsilon is looking to generate insight into the current state of Shiny development and usage among its user community. 

By filling out our survey, you will be contributing to a collective understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing Shiny developers. Additionally, you will have the chance to win a one-hour consultation with one of Appsilon’s Staff Engineers.

Furthermore, all participants will receive guaranteed priority access to the PDF report created based on the survey results

Estimated time to complete the form: 10 minutes; jump to the survey.

R Shiny’s Growing Popularity

With the increasing availability of data and the growing need for data-driven decision-making, the demand for interactive and engaging data visualization tools is on the rise. Shiny is well-positioned to meet this demand, thanks to its robust capabilities and strong community support.

With that being said, there are opportunities to create, contribute, and support the R/Shiny communities. But we need your help to see what tools, resources, languages, and applications are being used across the board.

Integrating Shiny with Other Toolkits and Resources

Shiny’s integration with proprietary software and a healthy ecosystem of open-source R packages makes it a powerful tool for data manipulation, visualization, and analysis. This integration allows for seamless data transformation and robust analytics, making Shiny an ideal choice for data scientists and analysts.

Open source and community contributions, such as Appsilon’s Rhinoverse, are what help spur innovation and adoption of R and Shiny for industry and academia. By understanding the needs of the R community and Shiny user base, groups like the open-source Lab at Appsilon can generate tools that match those needs.

What Does the State of Shiny Survey Mean for You?

Your participation in the “State of Shiny 2023” survey will help us develop a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by Shiny developers. As an incentive, you will also have the opportunity to win a consultation with one of Appsilon’s Staff Engineers.

Moreover, all participants will receive priority access to the PDF report created from the survey results. This report will provide valuable insights into Shiny usage. Get the results delivered to your inbox to stay up-to-date with the latest trends in Shiny development.

We hope to improve the transparency of Shiny use and help drive innovation where needed.
