This Week’s Widget - gifrecordeR
Animated GIFs are really useful for documenting, illustrating, sharing, and sometimes annoying. Yaron Noveh’s absolutely amazing gifw00t lets us record GIFs in the browser client-side, so if I wrap it in a
htmlwidget I can record GIFs of my RStudio Viewer or Shiny session and share them with the world.
SVG support is currently weak, but a work-in-progress.
Wrestling with the SVG support and trying to squeeze these into a
htmlwidget provde far more difficult than I imagined, so I ran out of time to write up a full post. I hope you don’t mind, but I just
iframed the Readme.md for now. I’ll try to edit and make a full post for now, but the weekend holiday is starting and the family is up. Also, I want to remind you of the weakly received Week 14’s exportwidget as a non-animated export option.
