7.1 Sharing as R files

  • A copy of your app’s files.
  • runUrl, runGitHub, and runGist, for details see ?runUrl.


shiny::runGitHub("rstudio/shiny-examples", subdir = "001-hello")

Limitaion of this approach: People who use your app need to setup a similar execution enviroment as you. For example, they need to install R, all the packages your app depends on, databases environment for more complicated apps and so on.
