Steph Locke explains how to use lapply() and fread() to validate and combine multiple uploaded files in R:

In shiny, you can use the fileInput with the parameter multiple = TRUE to enable you to upload multiple files at once. But how do you process those multiple files in shiny and consolidate into a single dataset?

The bit we need from shiny is the input$param$fileinputpath value.

Yuck. OK, I guess it does show that Sydney is one of three cities that are low density, […]

Using ggpairs To Find Correlations Between Variables In R

Akshay Mahale shows how to use the ggpairs function in R to see the correlation between different pairs of variables: From the above matrix for iris we can deduce the following insights: Correlation between Sepal.Length and Petal.Length is strong and dense. Sepal.Length and Sepal.Width seems to show very little correlation as datapoints are spreaded through out the plot area. Petal.Length and Petal.Width also shows strong correlation. Note: The […]
