{kevinbacran} test: what's your Hadley Number?

The app is live here: https://mattdray.shinyapps.io/hadley-number/

What?

A simple app to demonstrate the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. But it's for CRAN packages. And Hadley Wickham is Kevin Bacon.

The app demonstrates the tiny {kevinbacran} package for examining the shortest paths between any two authors from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

The app fixes one of those authors as Hadley Wickham given that he is named as author on a large number of packages on CRAN, particularly in the tidyverse suite).

Access

The app is live here: https://mattdray.shinyapps.io/hadley-number/ (hosted for free with shinyapps.io and is throttled at 25 hours of use per month; I may also take it down at any time.)

You can read more about {kevinbacran} and this app in a blogpost: https://www.rostrum.blog/2019/02/27/hadley-number/

Kudos

The app is built with {shiny} and includes {shinyhelper} from Chris Mason-Thom.

Citations for {kevinbacran} can be found in its pkgdown site.
