The Hosting Data Apps website is dedicated to help you learn about your hosting options. As outlined in the opening post, data app development related content is kept to a minimum. In this post we list resources that provide accessible introduction to Shiny app development.

What is Shiny again

Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R ... Shiny combines the computational power of R with the interactivity of the modern web. – RStudio

RStudio is the company behind such beloved products as the RStudio IDE, R markdown, the tidyverse set of packages, and Shiny. It is then just fitting to open the list of Shiny related resources with all the incredible content produced by the folks closest to Shiny.



These resources represent my go-to places when I need a refresher or inspiration. If you know of a great resource that deserves to be listed here, please suggest a title on Twitter (@analythium)!
