Lately I was wondering how to integrate my wordpress blog with a shiny app. This post is an example for the collaboration between these platforms following the advice from this thread in the shiny google group. Looking for a good example for an app, I stumbled upon this article from Luba Gloukhov on the Revolution blog. I shamelessly copied most of the code from Luba. Obviously the layout of this blog is not ideal for the layout of the app, but I will work this out on another day.
