R interface with Web tools


Hi All,

Trying to integrate R with a web application. (A noob when it comes to UI and app dev)
Mainly i want to know the best way to plot a boxplot/histogram on a web application.

Tried approaches -

  1. RPy2 using django web server. Facing issue on how to plot a boxplot on the frontend.
  2. Rserve
  3. Aware of RShiny. It requires a license and hence would keep it as last resort.

Anything else which is available and am missing out.



check htmlwidgets it gives interface to javascript
