Create a pretty checkbox that can be used to specify logical values.

prettyCheckbox(
  inputId,
  label,
  value = FALSE,
  status = "default",
  shape = c("square", "curve", "round"),
  outline = FALSE,
  fill = FALSE,
  thick = FALSE,
  animation = NULL,
  icon = NULL,
  plain = FALSE,
  bigger = FALSE,
  inline = FALSE,
  width = NULL
)
