miniMeta: Web Application to Run Meta-Analyses

Shiny web application to run meta-analyses. Essentially a graphical front-end to package 'meta' for R. Can be useful as an educational tool, and for quickly analyzing and sharing meta-analyses. Provides output to quickly fill in GRADE (Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluations) Summary-of-Findings tables. Importantly, it allows further processing of the results inside R, in case more specific analyses are needed.
