Publishing an App
Publishing an app is easy! Once you open a valid Shiny App project in RStudio, navigate to one of the following R Scripts that are part of the app:
global.R. A Publish Button should appear on the top right of the code window. It's a blue circular icon next to
Run App button.
Clicking on it will reveal the available accounts connected and then you can simply select the files you wish to upload along with the app and click Publish!
It will bundle your app and transfer it to the RStudio Connect instance on your workflow.
Note: This might take a while depending on your app size
You should see something like this printed out in the
Deploy console when it's sucessfully done:
Application successfully deployed to https://i-abc123def456ghi7.metworx.com:443/rsconnect/content/1/ Deployment completed: https://i-abc123def456ghi7.metworx.com:443/rsconnect/connect/#/apps/1
You may be prompted by this window if you have no available publishing accounts:
If this happens, click Next and follow the instructions outlined in the previous step
Updating published apps is easy! Simply click on the Publish Button again after making changes to your app and an
Update Tab should appear. Just click Publish again and your app should update.
