checkboxGroupInput and reactive of fileInput not yielding ggplot list

shiny

#1

I would like to plot the ggplot objects (bar and line plots) in the main panel as per the user options from checkboxGroupInput. When I tried the following code with fileInput in reactive of server logic, it returns Error in .getReactiveEnvironment()$currentContext() Could you please help me to identify where the code turns into error and suggest me a fix. Thanks

library(shiny)
library(ggplot2)
library(easyGgplot2)

# Creating dummy data to write a file to be used in fileinput
patient <- cbind.data.frame(seq(1:14), matrix(sample(1:100, 84), ncol = 6))
colnames(patient) <- c("DAYS", "PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY", "SMOKING", "ALCOHOL_INTAKE",
  "HYDRATION", "SLEEP", "Total_score")
write.csv(patient, file = "patient.csv")

# Shiny uicode starts
ui <- fluidPage(
  titlePanel("Data Plot"),
  sidebarLayout(
    sidebarPanel(
      fluidRow(
        column(6,
          checkboxGroupInput(
            "checkGroup", "Parameters",
            list("PHYSICAL ACTIVITY", "SLEEP"),
            selected = "PHYSICAL ACTIVITY"))),
      fluidRow(
        fileInput(
          "file1", "Choose Data sheet",
          multiple = TRUE,
          accept = c("text/csv", "text/comma-separated-values,text/plain", ".csv")))),
    mainPanel(plotOutput("plots"))
))

server <- function(input, output) {
  patient <- reactive({
    req(input$file1)
    read.csv(input$file1$datapath, header = T)
  })

  plot_one <- ggplot(data = patient(), aes(x = DAYS, y = PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY)) +
    geom_bar(
      stat = "identity",
      aes(fill = PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY <= median(PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY)),
      show.legend = F) +
    scale_fill_manual(values = c("steelblue", "red")) +
    labs(title = "PHYSICAL ACTIVITY (STEPS)", x = NULL, y = NULL) +
    theme_minimal()
  plot_two <- ggplot(data = patient(), aes(x = DAYS, y = SLEEP)) +
    geom_line(colour = "black", size = 1) +
    geom_point(
      size = 3,
      aes(colour = cut(SLEEP, c(-Inf, summary(SLEEP)[[2]], summary(SLEEP)[[5]], Inf))),
      show.legend = F) +
    scale_color_manual(values = c("red", "orange", "green")) +
    labs(title = "SLEEP (hrs)", x = NULL, y = NULL) +
    theme_minimal()

  list.of.plots <- list(`PHYSICAL ACTIVITY` = plot_one, SLEEP = plot_two)

  output$plots <- renderPlot({
    do.call(ggplot2.multiplot, c(list.of.plots[input$checkGroup], cols = 1))
  })
}

If the R objects are to be 'dynamic', they must be shiny reactivity functions.

I've updated your code above to use reactive({}) to wrap the computation of plot_one, plot_two, and list.of.plots.

server <- function(input, output) {
  patient <- reactive({
    req(input$file1)
    read.csv(input$file1$datapath, header = T)
  })

  plot_one <- reactive({
    ggplot(data = patient(), aes(x = DAYS, y = PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY)) +
      geom_bar(
        stat = "identity",
        aes(fill = PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY <= median(PHYSICAL_ACTIVITY)),
        show.legend = F) +
      scale_fill_manual(values = c("steelblue", "red")) +
      labs(title = "PHYSICAL ACTIVITY (STEPS)", x = NULL, y = NULL) +
      theme_minimal()
  })
  plot_two <- reactive({
    ggplot(data = patient(), aes(x = DAYS, y = SLEEP)) +
      geom_line(colour = "black", size = 1) +
      geom_point(
        size = 3,
        aes(colour = cut(SLEEP, c(-Inf, summary(SLEEP)[[2]], summary(SLEEP)[[5]], Inf))),
        show.legend = F) +
      scale_color_manual(values = c("red", "orange", "green")) +
      labs(title = "SLEEP (hrs)", x = NULL, y = NULL) +
      theme_minimal()
  })



  list.of.plots <- reactive({
    list(`PHYSICAL ACTIVITY` = plot_one(), SLEEP = plot_two())
  })

  output$plots <- renderPlot({
    do.call(ggplot2.multiplot, c(list.of.plots()[input$checkGroup], cols = 1))
  })
}

The logic was all there, just missed the reactivity part!

Thanks for your corrections. It’s working fine now.
