The goal of flexdashboard is to make it easy to create interactive dashboards for R, using R Markdown.
Use R Markdown to publish a group of related data visualizations as a dashboard.
Support for a wide variety of components including htmlwidgets; base, lattice, and grid graphics; tabular data; gauges and value boxes; and text annotations.
Flexible and easy to specify row and column-based layouts. Components are intelligently re-sized to fill the browser and adapted for display on mobile devices.
Storyboard layouts for presenting sequences of visualizations and related commentary.
Optionally use Shiny to drive visualizations dynamically.
Optionally use bslib to easily customize main colors, fonts, and more.

Install the flexdashboard package from CRAN as follows:
If you want to use the development version of the flexdashboard package, you can install the package from GitHub via the remotes package:
To author a flexdashboard you create an R Markdown document with the
flexdashboard::flex_dashboard output format. You can do this from within RStudio using the New R Markdown dialog:
If you are not using RStudio, you can create a new
flexdashboard R Markdown file from the R console. Currently there are two
"flex_dashboard" (basic) and
"flex_dashboard_bslib" (an example of theming with
rmarkdown::draft("dashboard.Rmd", template = "flex_dashboard_bslib", package = "flexdashboard")
There are two main places to get help with flexdashboard:
The RStudio community is a friendly place to ask any questions about flexdashboard. Be sure to use the
flexdashboard tag. Add also the
shiny tag is you are using a Shiny runtime.
Stack Overflow is a great source of answers to common flexdashboard questions. It is also a great place to get help, once you have created a reproducible example that illustrates your problem. Use the tags
[r][flexdashboard] if you ask a question. Add the tag
[shiny] if you are using a Shinyy runtime.
