Or install the latest development version (on GitHub):


Getting started

Please check the Shiny examples (see ?jstreeExamples).

The ‘folder gadget’:

The ‘tree navigator’ Shiny module:

The ‘tree navigator’ has not all the features of the ‘folder gadget’, it only allows to navigate in the server side file system and to select some files. But the ‘folder gadget’ loads all the structure of the root folder(s), while the ‘tree navigator’ loads the contents of a clicked folder only when this one is clicked by the user. And as a Shiny module, it is possible to build around it a more elaborated Shiny app.
