Back in July 2017, I experimented with interactive R HTML custom visuals in Power BI and created a simple table visual that I called R DataTable. I had originally submitted it to AppSource in October. After a few rounds of suggested changes over about four months, it is now live! That sounds like a lot of time, but most of the delay was me taking long breaks from it. Also, many thanks to Boris Efraty from Microsoft for reviewing a high CPU issue with interactive R visuals. He also fixed a package dependency and ultimately helped to get this published. In case you did not know, Boris has developed many of the existing Power BI R HTML visuals that you can find on AppSource.
What is R DataTable, and what can it do? The short video below (no audio) provides a quick look at three of R DataTable’s key uses: column-specific filters, changing the number of records that display per page, and global search across all fields.
