Launch Shiny App Without Blocking the Session

· 2018/02/13 · 1 minute read

This is a neat trick I found on Tyler Morgan-Wall’s Twitter and is originally attributed to Joe Cheng. You can run any Shiny app without blocking the session. My helper function to run ShinyStan without blocking is below:

launch_shinystan_nonblocking <- function(fit) {
    launch_shinystan(fit) #You can replace this with any other Shiny app

Hope that helps!
