shinystan: Interactive Visual and Numerical Diagnostics and Posterior Analysis for Bayesian Models

A graphical user interface for interactive Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) diagnostics and plots and tables helpful for analyzing a posterior sample. The interface is powered by the 'Shiny' web application framework from 'RStudio' and works with the output of MCMC programs written in any programming language (and has extended functionality for 'Stan' models fit using the 'rstan' and 'rstanarm' packages).
