############### Library Declarations ###############
libraryRequireInstall("ggplot2");
libraryRequireInstall("plotly")
####################################################

################### Actual code ####################
g = qplot(`Petal.Length`, data = Values, fill = `Species`, main = Sys.time());
####################################################

############# Create and save widget ###############
p = ggplotly(g);
internalSaveWidget(p, 'out.html');
####################################################

################ Reduce paddings ###################

@AJ_2024 from the error, looks like you are missing some libraries, xml2, htmlwidgets. Do you want to try installing them and see if it works. If you have already installed them and it still does not work (which happened to me), the following worked for me.

 

When I run R in PBI, the packages are accessed by PBI from C:\Users\xxxx\Library. However, when I install the packages from R studio, the installed packages get saved in C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\R\win-library\3.5. Therefore, I changed the default path of "Install to Library:" in R studio from C:\Users\xxxx\Documents\R\win-library\3.5 to C:\Users\xxxx\Library and I got the desired output.

You cannot bring your own renderer. Only the standard plotting device is supported.

 

Create Power BI visuals using R - Power BI | Microsoft Learn

I am a pro user, I think we can create our own custom Power BI visuals that is packaged in single .pbiviz file and can be imported into the report.
