Show help tips to first time visitor to shiny app


#1

Hello, As some of my apps get more complex, I want to include help tips in Shiny apps.
Say for example, like when one visits the Google Data Studio for the first time.
I know I would have to write code to detect if it’s their first visit, or I could add a link to display these kind of notes
Any tips? Or what I should learn to include them on my apps?

Ok don’t know if it’s bad form to reply to my own question.
A little more careful googling led me to Intro.js and of course there exists
an easy to implement r/shiny wrapper at https://github.com/carlganz/rintrojs

Figured this would be useful for other people.

Not bad form at all - it’s encouraged, because that way when someone else has the same question they’ll see the answer!
