TidyX Episode 19: {formattable} for Dashboard Design

This week, Ellis Hughes and I explain coded written by Lauren Pandori, who built a nice dashboard for data on astronaut missions provided by the TidyTuesday Project.

Lauren had a few questions for us regarding other elements she wanted to add to her dashboard so Ellis and I tackle those and how you how you can build your own dashboard using the {formattable} and {sparkline} packages.

The end product is a dashboard that has trend lines, conditional formatting, and conditional bar plots all in one. The nice thing is that we show you how you can save the dashboard to an HTML so that it is easy to share with colleagues and co-workers. Finally, during the data exploration phase we walk through a cool way to use {plotly} to visualize trend lines in an interactive manner.
