Mixing shinyapp and shinydashboard


Just a general question. I want to write an app with the classic shinyapp layout but would like to use some of the elements of shinydashboard (valueBox, in this instance). Is is possible to mix these two together? If so, can anyone give me an example of how I might be able to achieve this please?

Kind regards,


I think it should be fine. As far as I know shinydashboard just provides some extra prebuilt structures that you can use in shiny. Why don't you try it?

I gave it a go with various combination of dashboardPage, dashboardHeader etc, but the most I could get is the text from the valueBox that I wanted. I shall have another look around and do more experimenting.
