[New Features on steemr] Functions for a user friendly UI as an interactive follower report!

By Peng Zhao | July 10, 2018

A new functionsfollow() displays a Shiny app, which is a user friendly interactive UI as a follower report.

Shiny is an R package that makes it easy to build interactive web apps straight from R. It is very easy to use even for non-R users. The single command sfollow() displays a webpage, on which the users just has to type an ID, and then a follower report will appear, with (1) a list of the 'followers but not following', (2) 'following but not followers', (3) a table of the followers' information, and (4) a table of the following information. The users can easily filter or order each column.

Part 4 of @ned's follower report produced by sfollow().

How did I implement them?

I added the new function sfollow() in 'R/shiny.r', as well as the internal functions sfollow_ui() and sfollow_server() which are the UI function and server function for sfollow(). Each part of the functions are well documented. Other files were updated automatically by compilation.
