Fortunately, I do know my way around R, and of course someone had already integrated dypgrahs in R in the form of the
dygraphs R package. It works like a charm!
install.packages("dygraphs") library("dygraphs") dygraph(AirPassengers)
Also in R, your dygraphs are fully interactive, with my mouse hoevering over June 1951 in the below example.
And you can add all kinds of cool elements and modifications to the graphs, such as for instance a range selector:
dygraph(AirPassengers) %>% dyRangeSelector()
For the full range of visualization options dygraphs offers in R, please do have a look at the official RStudio page.
