Code generators for Shiny?


I was wondering if anyone has looked into or knows of packages that can generate shiny code?

For example, I would like to be able to automatically generate a shiny app that is similar to a google form ( based on the columns of a spreadsheet or based on a configuration file.

There are examples of automatic form generation in python ( and spring boot (

Suggestions/Thoughts welcome :slight_smile:



For anyone interested, I mocked up a simple PoC here

I think it has a lot of potential to stream line app development! @jcheng @slopp @daattali @winston @trestletech
