Add beautiful text effects in your Shiny apps

The textyle package allows to reproduce the beautiful text effects from Textyle.js in a Shiny app.

Usage

Install textyle from GitHub.

Shiny

To animate a text, simply call textyle() on any tag element from tags().

library(shiny)
library(textyle)
 
shinyApp(
  ui = fluidPage(
      align = "center",
      br(), br(), br(),
      textyle(tags$p("TEXTYLE", style = "font-size:7rem;font-weight:900;")),
      textOutput("text")
  ),
  server = function(input, output){
    output$text <- renderText({ print("- Simple Text Effect -") })
  }
)

Customize it

You can change the color, the easing (see jquery-easing for all options availables) or the speed of the text effect.

To reproduce the non colored effect, change the color to black and add class = "ex1" in the function.

textyle(p("TEXTYLE"), color = "black", class = "ex1")

The reproduced text effects are taken from this codepen.
