HI Chris,

You can use the R plotly library on your own computer to create the
interactive graph, then upload the code to the server.

I have a setup like that where real-time data is processed every hour,
a Rmarkdown file is rendered using the R plotly package to make the
graphs, and then the resulting html file is copied to the server.

It sounds like exactly what you need.

I need to keep these graphs internal to our organization, so can’t use Shiny etc.; I am also unable to run R or other products on my server (company policy).  So, basically what I’m trying to do is create the dashboard on my desktop, export the HTML or whatever files, and post those to the Intranet.  I have tried ggvis, iplots, and a variety of other packages but I cannot seem to get them to work as i need them to.
