- [Instructor] Shiny allows interactive web applications…to be built using the R language.…Let's see how we can embed a Highcharter HTML widget…into a Shiny app and extract click information.…Let's start by seeing the skeleton of my Shiny app.…In my exercise files, I'll open server.R.…I'll minimize the environment…because I don't need to see it for now.…And let's run our app so we can see…what we're going to be building.…So our app includes a single Highchart visualization,…which includes a scatter plot called Series 1…and a line chart called Series 2.…
And what we want is for information to be shown at the top…when I mouse over any of the markers,…and if I click on any of the markers in the scatter plot,…I want information about that marker to be shown.…We need to plan this together.…Let's talk about how we go about doing that…before we write the code.…At the time of recording, unfortunately,…the version of Highcharter available from CRAN…does not support extracting click events from Shiny.…Thankfully, it's actually really simple…

Start by learning to manage packages and structure data for visualizations with the tidyverse and the pipe operator. Then there is an important question: Which library should you choose? The course introduces five popular options: Leaflet, Plotly, Highcharter, visNetwork, and DataTables (DT). Instructor Martin Hadley shows how to use these libraries to create scattergeo, choropleth, and geolines maps; stacked bar charts, scatter charts, bubble charts, and heat maps; treemaps and time series charts; interactive networks and graphs; and responsive, interactive data tables. Plus, learn how to customize your visualizations with legends and tooltips, and extract click information for Shiny apps.
