Shiny app- beginner


Is it possible to input the data in the side panel and run the analysis in Shiny app and visualize the output?

I understand that it is possible to upload dataset and visualise the output in shiny app, but is there a way to enter data directly in the shiny web input panel and run the analysis and visualize data.

I look forward to your guidance.



Yes, whole files can be uploaded by the user and processed in the app with fileInput() as described here. It's also always possible to have a textAreaInput() as described there, and parse the content.

In any case you will have to learn how to interact with Shiny, the book I linked is pretty good.
