Calendar plot shiny app and dynamic UI

Calendar plot shiny app using dynamic UI.

In my previous post, I created a calendar planner plot using ggplot2. I wanted to take it further and create a shiny app for it. This was more of a shiny learning exercise rather than a purpose-driven app. Specifically, creating dynamic user inputs and retrieving data from these inputs.

Calendar plot with ggplot2

Creating an availability calendar plot using ggplot2 in R.

So, someone asked me about my summer time availability at work. I realized that my availability was a bit complex and perhaps it was easier to sent a figure/diagram rather than explaining it in 200 words.

The idea is to show basically three categories: available, not available and a limited period (where I am not available in person, but can read emails).

Photo calender using R

Create an elegant photo calendar completely using R.

I had this idea of using some of my travel photos to create a photo calendar. I would normally go about it using Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. But, that would involve a lot of manual work placing dates and days for each month. I would also like to mark some public holidays and friend’s birthdays. So, I wondered if it might be possible to do it with R. After fiddling about with it over the weekend, I managed to make it work. It went better than I expected. And here I am recreating the calendar using some stock photos. All stock photos are royalty-free from Pexels. For the impatient ones, the whole code and images are available at this Github repository. For detailed guide, keep reading.
