  gradient = c("linear", "radial"),
  direction = c("bottom", "top", "right", "left"),
  shinydashboard = FALSE
)

Examples

if (interactive()) { ### Uniform color background : library(shiny) library(shinyWidgets) ui <- fluidPage( tags$h2("Change shiny app background"), setBackgroundColor("ghostwhite") ) server <- function(input, output, session) { } shinyApp(ui, server) ### linear gradient background : library(shiny) library(shinyWidgets) ui <- fluidPage( # use a gradient in background setBackgroundColor( color = c("#F7FBFF", "#2171B5"), gradient = "linear", direction = "bottom" ), titlePanel("Hello Shiny!"), sidebarLayout( sidebarPanel( sliderInput("obs", "Number of observations:", min = 0, max = 1000, value = 500) ), mainPanel( plotOutput("distPlot") ) ) ) server <- function(input, output, session) { output$distPlot <- renderPlot({ hist(rnorm(input$obs)) }) } shinyApp(ui, server) ### radial gradient background : library(shiny) library(shinyWidgets) ui <- fluidPage( # use a gradient in background setBackgroundColor( color = c("#F7FBFF", "#2171B5"), gradient = "radial", direction = c("top", "left") ), titlePanel("Hello Shiny!"), sidebarLayout( sidebarPanel( sliderInput("obs", "Number of observations:", min = 0, max = 1000, value = 500) ), mainPanel( plotOutput("distPlot") ) ) ) server <- function(input, output, session) { output$distPlot <- renderPlot({ hist(rnorm(input$obs)) }) } shinyApp(ui, server) }
