Code generators for Shiny?


#1

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has looked into or knows of packages that can generate shiny code?

For example, I would like to be able to automatically generate a shiny app that is similar to a google form (https://deanattali.com/2015/06/14/mimicking-google-form-shiny/) based on the columns of a spreadsheet or based on a configuration file.

There are examples of automatic form generation in python (https://github.com/stephenmcd/django-forms-builder) and spring boot (http://www.jhipster.tech/)

Suggestions/Thoughts welcome :slight_smile:

Cheers,

Iain

For anyone interested, I mocked up a simple PoC here

I think it has a lot of potential to stream line app development! @jcheng @slopp @daattali @winston @trestletech
