In this project, we would like to extend the capabilities for data collection to the Shiny framework for web applications in R (https://shiny.rstudio.com/), which is a great, open-source library for building interactive, data-driven websites as well as collecting data, for example via questionnaires. Shiny also makes it easy for researchers to deploy websites on their own infrastructure as well as commercial providers such as shinyapps.io (https://shinyapps.io/). The goal we’d like to achieve with you will be to enable running behavioral experiments, and to collect data, via lab.js and Shiny.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch – we would be glad to answer any questions you have, and help sketch out a formal proposal. You’re warmly invited to say hello in our community (lab.js · Support) – we’d love to hear from you!
