Title: Rbokeh: An R Interface to the Bokeh Plotting Library
Author(s): Ryan Hafen*
Companies: Hafen Consulting
Keywords: visualization ; interactive

Bokeh is an interactive visualization library that targets modern web browsers for presentation. Its goal is to provide elegant, concise construction of novel interactive graphics. The rbokeh package is an R interface that translates commands in R to a visualization specification that is rendered by the BokehJS client library. The R interface is designed to be simple but flexible, allowing the expressiveness required for rapid generation of ad hoc statistical plots, while providing simple yet useful interactive capabilities such as zoom/pan and tooltips with nearly no additional effort. In this talk I will introduce rbokeh and discuss its design, show examples, and discuss future efforts for adding more interactivity into the package.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
