Creating Modal Dialogues In Shiny

Dean Attali announces a new shiny package:

shinyalert uses the sweetalert JavaScript library to create simple and elegant modals in Shiny. Modals can contain text, images, OK/Cancel buttons, an input to get a response from the user, and many more customizable options. A modal can also have a timer to close automatically.

Simply call shinyalert() with the desired arguments, such as a title and text, and a modal will show up. In order to be able to call shinyalert() in a Shiny app, you must first call useShinyalert() anywhere in the app’s UI.

It does look nice.  Check out Dean’s GitHub repo for more information. H/T R-Bloggers

A calibrated model is important in many applications, particularly when financial data […]
