About

Ok, so this is project I whipped up when I wanted to see how the Astros were doing compared to 2017. It started as thinking I’d just render some plots and post theme somewhere, and then things escaled and before long I was making Shiny markdown documents and debugging reactive widgets, and things went kept going from there.

The “apps” are web apps, and maybe I just say that more explicitly, and you can see more about them on the apps page.

As for the data, some comes from Fangraphs, and the game logs come from Baseball Reference. I grab it once a day or so, and then store the data I need locally. I know there’s no copyright on data/facts, but I’m trying to be reasonable.
