A tutorial on modularizing existing R Shiny apps – how and why do it and what to keep in mind. Differs from many other tutorials in that it follows a top-down approach: instead of using an example of writing a simple modular app from scratch, I took a complex real-life app and broke it down into modules.
A brief tutorial on the easiest – albeit limited – way to theme Shiny apps using CSS tags. Should be enough for most apps; also works if you need to make ad-hoc changes to a premade (e.g. corporate) theme used in your app.
Part 2 of the series of tutorials on correlation analysis in R. In this part, I will provide an overview of the relevant packages and functions. I will also address some of the best practices to write up and visualize correlations as text, tables, and correlation matrices in online and print publications.
Part 1 of the series of practical hands-on tutorials on performing correlation analysis in R. In this part, I will provide a simple overview of what correlation coefficients are, what they tell and don’t tell us, when they are meaningful (aka statistically significant), and what is their practical significance.
An R package containing themes for ggplot2 that have been optimized for blogs and similar online usage: theme_web_bw, theme_web_classic, and theme_web_void.
Sooner or later (usually sooner) a data analyst runs into a situation where one needs to make multiple visualizations on the same subject, which can be slow and time-consuming. By writing simple functions, it is possible to automate most of the work, thus greatly simplifying and speeding up repetitive plotting tasks.
An interactive dashboard to explore the Government of Canada’s official statistics on the spread of the COVID-19 disease. Built with R Shiny, Leaflet, and plotly. Auto-updated every six hours.
CANSIM, also known as Statistics Canada Data, stands for Canadian Socioeconomic Information Management System. Here I’ll address some of the key features of CANSIM data and explain how to set up the R tools required to work with it.
An introduction to the series on working with Statistics Canada data in the R language. The goal of the series is to provide some examples (accompanied by detailed in-depth explanations) of working with Statistics Canada data in R.
