Hello, Vineet,

Thank you for contacting us.

Flexmonster Pivot is a JavaScript library so it should be embedded into Shiny in the same way as any other JavaScript code. For more detailed instructions we suggest referring to the Shiny documentation: https://shiny.rstudio.com/articles/packaging-javascript.html.

Hope it helps.

Regards,
Tanya

Hello Vineet,
We have prepared a sample R shiny project with Flexmonster integrated into it.
Please find it on our GitHub: https://github.com/flexmonster/pivot-r-shiny.
The starting point is the app.r file.
Let us know if everything works fine for you.
Regards,
Dmytro

Hello, Vineet,

Thank you for your question.

To get the trial key you need to request Flexmonster package for your data source.
A confirmation email with a trial key and Flexmonster package will be sent to you after the request.

Copy the key and paste it into the licenseKey property.
For example:

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
		container: "pivotContainer",
		componentFolder: "flexmonster/",
		toolbar: true,
/*Insert your trial key here*/ licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" });

Here is a link to where you can see how Flexmonster is embedded into a Shiny application.

Please contact us if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,
Vera
