By Juliane Manitz | June 2, 2023

The {riskassessment} app, presented by Aaron Clark from the R Validation Hub Executive Committee, was voted best Shiny app at shinyConf 2023. The 2nd Annual Shiny Conference was held in March 2023. It was all virtual with over 4k global registrants. Congratulations!!

The app provides a shiny front-end to augment the utility of the {riskmetric} package, thus user-friendly and interactive access to risk assessment of R packages. The apps functionalities include:

  • Analyze risk metrics for each R package (and version) without the need to write code in R
  • Encourage open-source mentality by contribution of user/reviewer comments
  • Save overall assessment decision for each package (categories: low, medium, or high risk)
  • Download reports with risk metrics outputs, and reviewer comments, and more
  • Administration: All assessments are stored in a database and admins can manage users roles and metric weighting
