Dashboards are a useful way to communicate large amounts of information visually and quickly. Create one with the flexdashboard::flex_dashboard output format, as in the .Rmd file below (available here on RStudio Cloud):

Flexdashboard makes it easy to organize your content into a visual layout:

  • Each Level 1 Header (#) begins a new page in the dashboard.
  • Each Level 2 Header (##) begins a new column.
  • Each Level 3 Header (###) begins a new box.

You can further modify elements with attributes, as in the {.sidebar} above.

Flexdashboard also provides simple tools for creating tabsets, value boxes, and gauges. Learn more about flexdashboard at flexdashboard: Easy interactive dashboards for R.
