There are 2 ways to use visPIG: a) through a html GUI b) headless from a terminal

a) from a GUI

To use the App: 'source' the R file 'Run_the_app.R' whilst ensuring that the current working directory is the directory in which Run_the_app.R lives. For example by:

i) Dragging Run_the_app.R's icon into an R console, or

ii) Executing the following command in R (replacing "your_local_folder_name" as appropriate):
	source(your_local_folder_name/Run_the_app.R, chdir=TRUE)

After your R terminal should display a line like this: Listening on

Just copy this http link into a browser of your choice (Firefox works for sure) and visPIG should be up and running.

Note: The R package 'shiny' needs to be installed. To do this, run the following command in R: install.packages("shiny")

b) from the command line

Navigate to the directory visPIG/App/download_R_code/ and consult the README.txt in that directory.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
