Abstract: This app recreates the computer console interface from the popular science fiction television series, Star Trek.

Full Description: This app recreates the computer console interface from the popular science fiction television series, Star Trek. This is done using the lcars package (LCARS: Library Computer Access/Retrieval System). GitHub

It features the familiar console aesthetic, themed custom widgets, custom-generated simple CRS (non-geographic) map tiles and accompanying leaflet maps.

The app is designed to showcase some of the features and styles available in the package. The map tiles generated with the tiler package are of the Star Trek fictional universe and include some georeferenced points of interest.

This app is included in version 0.3.5 of lcars. Load library(lcars) and launch the app with lcarsApp("leaflet").

Your link to the Shiny app is just the RStudio Cloud link again.

Yeah, it wouldn't let me submit without filling in that field. I don't have a self-hosted app link at the moment.

Update: I have this hosted on shinyapps.io now: Star Trek computer console
