Hi Chris (and Sarah),

Chris you've listed a lot of restrictions, but I just wanted to
mention Jeroen Ooms' work developing OpenCPU:

"The OpenCPU system exposes an http API for embedded scientific
computing with R. The server can run either as a single-user
development server within the interactive R session, or as a
multi-user linux stack based on rApache and NGINX."


You may be able to figure out a way to work around (some of) your
restrictions using opencpu.js, the OpenCPU JavaScript client library.

>> Good evening,

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.
>> Any suggestions?  I need to present my proposed plan to the directors on Wednesday and really don’t want to use Excel for the graphs - I want this to be intuitive for them, but ensuring that the report is easily maintained and more flexible than a Pivot Table.
>> Thanks so much for your time and have a good evening
