There are a growing number of Shiny users across the world, and with many users comes an increasing number of open-source “add-on” packages that extend the functionality of Shiny, both in terms of the front end and the back end of an app.
This blog will highlight 5 UI add-on packages that can massively improve your user experience and also just add a bit of flair to your app. Each package will have an associated example app (some more inspired than others) that I’ve created where you can actually see the UI component in action. All code for example apps can be found on our GitHub.
