TidyX Episode 165: Base R plots Part 1

This week, Ellis Hughes and I discuss how to get started with Base R plots. We’ve done a ton on our screen cast using {ggplot2} and {plotly}. But, there are some cool things you can do with Base R plots to make them look really nice and presentable. In this first part we discuss scatter plots and show how to go from the basic default settings into something that is more presentable.

TidyX Episode 163: Advanced Shiny – Creating dynamic links to webpages using DT

In this episode, Ellis Hughes and I use the {DT} package within a {shiny} app and scrape data from hockey-reference.com. We show how you can build a shiny web-app that allows you to insert an html link into the data table so the user can link directly out to the original website if they want to obtain extra data from the source itself.

TidyX Episode 162: Advanced Shiny – Web Scraping & Dynamic Linking

Ellis Hughes and I have been working on some advanced shiny tutorials. This week, we show how you can dynamically link to a webpage via your shiny server, have the server scrape the web page for the defined user query and then return the results back to them. We do this using NHL data provided by the folks at www.hockey-reference.com.
