Using boxes outside of shinydashboard


#1

My favorite feature of shinydashboard is the handy box() element that helps to organize content visually. I have a major production application that was built using the normal user interface functions offered by shiny itself, but in my next release I would like to add the boxes without doing the full conversion to shinydashboard just yet (as that will require an immense re-write). Is anyone aware of a way to use the box() elements inside a typical shiny user interface? I thought I saw a newer package that offered boxes and other various UI elements for use in a typical shiny application, but I could have been mistaken.

I just found that the development version of shinyWidgets has added ways to bring certain shinydashboard elements like boxes to a regular shiny app!
