Methods and features

D3po’s goal is to provide out-of-the-box beautiful visualizations with minimum time and coding effort from the final user. It acts as intermediate layer between the user and Shiny and D3 by providing “templates”, enabling high quality interactive visualizations.

D3po methods:

D3po features:


You can install the stable version from CRAN with:


You can install the development version of d3po from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")


This is an example consisting in the creation of a box and whiskers plot:

d3po(pokemon) %>%
  po_box(daes(x = type_1, y = speed, color = color_1)) %>%
  po_title("Distribution of Pokemon speed by main type")

To access a templated project, in RStudio’s top bar click File -> New Project -> New Directory -> Shiny app with Golem+D3po. Otherwise, start with a blank project and run d3po::d3po_template() to copy the same templates.

You can install the templated projects as any other R package. The templates have their own readme files, so please read them.
