Application presentation

This book uses a series of applications as examples.

{hexmake}

{hexmake} is an application that has been designed to build hex logos. It’s been built by Colin, and it serves two main purposes: it helps the creation of a logo, but mainly it serves as an example of some complex features you can use inside a {shiny} application (image manipulation, custom CSS, linking to an external database, save and restore, etc.).
