Shiny Contest Submission: Create Visual Abstracts for Original Research




The idea of 'Visual Abstracts' have recently become popular and are particularly efficient in distilling the main findings of original research.

I wanted to create an application that enabled users (or non programmers in general) to create nice visual summaries for their research projects they could share over social media. I've added a fair bit of control and customization in the application mostly related to layout to aesthetics.

Technical pieces:
-uses 'rintrojs' to orient users to the application
-combination of renderUI + ggplot2 are at the heart of the application

Here are the links to the project:

Here is a sample of what the App can do


Thank you for your considerations!
