Use Case Determination


I am new to R and Shiny, and I am trying to determine if Shiny would be an appropriate solution for a particular use case I have in mind. What would be some of the criteria one would look at to make that determination?

Ultimately I would like to create a website where users (i.e., external customers) can pull / print reports from benchmark studies. I am trying to move away from dense PDF documents that are table heavy. The data calculations are simplistic, but I think the filtering could be complex. From what I have seen from Shiny examples, I think it might be a good solution.


Hi, this is a great question. Actually there is a long discussion thread about it that can give you some insight: Discussion: when is Shiny a good choice vs when is it not the right tool for the job?
