8:00 - 8:30 PM - Baking JavaScript into a Shiny Package

Jon Harmon

I'm not an expert in JavaScript, but I wanted to use cookies in my Shiny apps, and the easiest way to do that was to use the js-cookie JavaScript library. Once I got that working, I wrapped it into its own package, so that anyone (including future me) could easily use that library in future Shiny apps. I'll show how this effort led to the {cookies} package, which is now available on CRAN.
