A Simple Modularized Shiny App

A Shiny module is a piece of code that is included as part of a larger Shiny app. I wrote this small Shiny app as I could not find a really simple example elsewhere. It is based on the “Hello Shiny” example that comes with the Shiny package. You can run it with:


Hello Shiny is a simple application that uses the sidebarLayout, with a sliderInput in the sidebarPanel and a histogram displayed in the mainPanel. My Shiny app modularizes the sidebarPanel part of the sidebarLayout.

Added a second version of modularized “Hello Shiny” that uses renderUI in the module that switches between two sliderInput functions.
