Shiny

Introduction

There are two main ways to use linne in shiny apps: 1) a convenient but inefficient one 2) an efficient but less flexible way.

Include

In shiny the easiest way to add the CSS to an application is to use the include method. Note however, that this is not advised in production, see the write to improve performances.

library(linne)
library(shiny)

linne <- Linne$new()$
rule(
sel_id("btn"),
color = "white",
backgroundColor = "red"
)

ui <- fluidPage(
linne$include(), # incude CSS actionButton("btn", "I'm a red button") ) server <- function(input, output){} shinyApp(ui, server) Inject You can generate the CSS using Linne as per usual then inject it dynamically in the page with the inject method. Note that for this you will need to place useLinne in UI of shiny page. library(linne) library(shiny) linne <- Linne$
new()$rule( sel_id("change"), color = "white", backgroundColor = "black" ) ui <- fluidPage( useLinne(), # only required for inject method actionButton("change", "Change me!") ) server <- function(input, output){ observeEvent(input$change, {
linne$inject() }) } shinyApp(ui, server) Write The include method will (by default) build the CSS every time it is called making it inefficient for prod. When deploying an app it is always better to save the generated CSS to a file then link that file in the shiny application. Note that the CSS file has to be served in order to be accessible by the browser. RStudio defaults to the www directory, if you wish to place it in another directory you will have to use shiny::addResourcePath. dir.create("www") # create static asset directory Linne$
new()$rule( sel_tag("p"), color = "white", fontSize = 30 )$
write("www/style.css") # save 

Then use the link tag to link to the CSS file.

library(linne)
library(shiny)

ui <- fluidPage(
tags$head( tags$link(rel = "stylesheet", href = "www/style.css")
),
p("This is rather large text"),
p("This too!")
)

server <- function(input, output){}

shinyApp(ui, server)
