The IDN runs and administrates a shinyapps.io subscription that hosts all interactive data visualisations developed by the network for researchers at the University. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in submitting an Shiny app to the service.
The interactive application on this page is an example of a Shiny app hosted on the IDN shinyapps.io account; built for the Online Labour Project. There is significant support and training in Shiny available here.
Shinyapps.io is a subscription-based, hosted Shiny service. This allows users of R and Shiny to publish their interactive visualisations/webapps to the web for others to interact with. Subscriptions are limited primarily by the number of active hours awarded to each account; a free account is available with 25 free active hours [correct December 2016].
While a shiny app is displayed on screen, active hours are consumed. Apps will automatically timeout after 15minutes, unless otherwise specified
