R Markdown Format for Flexible Dashboards

Format for converting an R Markdown document to a grid oriented dashboard. The dashboard flexibly adapts the size of it's components to the containing web page.

  • Use R Markdown to publish a group of related data visualizations as a dashboard.

  • Support for a wide variety of components including htmlwidgets; base, lattice, and grid graphics; tabular data; gauges and value boxes; and text annotations.

  • Flexible and easy to specify row and column-based layouts. Components are intelligently re-sized to fill the browser and adapted for display on mobile devices.

  • Storyboard layouts for presenting sequences of visualizations and related commentary.

  • Optionally use Shiny to drive visualizations dynamically.
