Resolve R htmlwidget compatibilities in Databricks
Hello, our company is using Databricks to create retrieve & manipulate data for BI analysis, we found that htmlwidgets in R were not compatible with the product. The charts can't be displayed and the only workaround provided by Microsoft support (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/databricks/notebooks/visualizations/htmlwidgets) was to change one of the method to download the picture. Imagine how non-user friendly is it.
htmlwidget (https://www.htmlwidgets.org/index.html) is a standard format of output for several interactive visualization libraries is R (such as leaflet, plotly and many others)
From the start, the bug in Databricks was identified for all htmlwidgets. It is not specific to leaflet which was just used as an example of htmlwidget (https://www.htmlwidgets.org/showcase_leaflet.html)
The product should support any library of htmlwidgets R
