An overview of htmlwidgets

A brief overview of using htmlwidgets in R


May 25, 2017



The {htmlwidgets} package allows developers to create R bindings to JavaScript libraries. The resulting R packages allow the embedding of interactive content in R Markdown documents and Shiny web apps. There are over 50 available widgets. In this talk I give an overview of the htmlwidget framework and demonstrate the use of the {DT}, {leaflet} and {DiagrammeR} packages.
