If you are a Shiny developer, chances are you’ve created a dashboard app. Dashboards are probably the most popular type of Shiny app, and they allow you to display and interact with data in a visually appealing and intuitive way.

In this talk, we will show you how bslib can make stunning dashboards with Shiny. Not only is bslib a package that pairs with Shiny to provide up-to-date and themable versions of Bootstrap, but bslib has evolved to include a range of components and layouts that are specifically designed for creating delightful dashboards. Recently, we’ve begun recommending Shiny developers turn to bslib instead of shinydashboard, the long time standard dashboarding package for Shiny.

We will cover all of the latest exciting developments in bslib, including the recently unveiled new default Shiny look and feel.
