EDA R Shiny Package


Dear Hivemind,

There's a question on the Davis RUG about existing options for Exploratory Data Analysis platforms akin to Tableau, but built using open source tools.

"Hey All,

I've been poking around a bit to find an open source alternative to Tableau - anyone have anything they use? Not sure if folks here just use R but having something easier to navigate for others at my company is something I'm trying to tackle currently and Tableau works great but an open source version would be nice too.


I could swear it was a new package that had only been released in alpha, but it used R Shiny to do EDA with a new dataset. I remember seeing that someone/group had built such a platform and released it in beta/alpha on github as a package, but, but my searching on there has brought up nothing.

Does anyone know of anything like that and can answer Ryan? Am I remembering something that doesn't exist (plausible)?
