Building a Google Analytics Dashboard using RShiny

Pascal Schmidt builds a Shiny dashboard:

I participated in the R Shiny 2021 contest and published an application similar to the Google Analytics dashboard app. For that, I used the Google Analytics API and the Google Search Console API to pull my own data from my blog directly into the application.

The application uses the shinyauthr library because the dashboard can be adjusted for each user who has their own username and password. On the first page, there are some visualizations for page views, devices used, etc. On the second page, there is a time-series model that tries to predict my page views two months in advance.

In particular, this post covers a couple of the foundational pieces, with future posts getting into more detail on other components. H/T R-Bloggers.
