Related analysis and reporting are stored in Displayr documents. The first step in conducting any analysis is to create a document.
A displayr document contains:
- Your raw data.
- All the analses you have done.
- Instructions for automatically updating the analyses and reporting.
The documents page lists all your Displayr documents, as well as any folders that you have created. Displayr documents can be created in a number of ways:
- You can manually create them by clicking + New Document.
- They can be automatically created when you click on various links (e.g., online tutorials).
- You can upload them, by clicking Upload.
Once you have created a document, you go into edit mode, which is where you perform your analyses and design your reports. The image below lists the key features of the user interface.
Document settings can be accessed by clicking on the docment name and then Document Settings (see below).
View mode is how Displayr appears to end-users. That is, it is what people see when they view a document that has been published as a web page.
Settings for the account (e.g., invoicing, users) are obtained by clicking on the person icon (see below) and selecting Account Settings).
Displayr Cloud Drive
The Displayr Cloud Driver is an online file storage system. It is used as a repository for an organization's data.
Programmatic control of Displayr
In addition to having a graphical user interface, Displayr has various tools for performing analysis and reporting via code:
- Displayr allows you to write R code from within the app. Additional languages can be run from within the R code, including c++, Python, and HTML.
- The Displayr API allows Displayr documents to be created and modified by code.
