Docker for Shiny Server
This is a Dockerfile for Shiny Server on Debian "testing". It is based on the r-base image.
The image is available from Docker Hub.
As of January 2017, the Shiny Server log is written to
stdout and can be viewed using
docker logs. The logs for individual apps are in the
/var/log/shiny-server directory, as described in the Shiny Server Administrator's Guide
To run a temporary container with Shiny Server:
docker run --rm -p 3838:3838 rocker/shiny
To expose a directory on the host to the container use
-v <host_dir>:<container_dir>. The following command will use one
/srv/shinyapps as the Shiny app directory and
/srv/shinylog as the directory for Shiny app logs. Note that if the directories on the host don't already exist, they will be created automatically.:
docker run --rm -p 3838:3838 \ -v /srv/shinyapps/:/srv/shiny-server/ \ -v /srv/shinylog/:/var/log/shiny-server/ \ rocker/shiny
In a real deployment scenario, you will probably want to run the container in detached mode (
-d) and listening on the host's port 80 (
docker run -d -p 80:3838 \ -v /srv/shinyapps/:/srv/shiny-server/ \ -v /srv/shinylog/:/var/log/shiny-server/ \ rocker/shiny

Thank you. :) This work fine to me.
If you need some package, install yourself.
In my case, I login to shiny-server that id 'shiny' and run 'R'. after I install packages 'shiny', 'tm','wordcloud'..etc.
it work fine too. :)
In order to add
ggplot2 support to my shiny image, I added the following line to my
RUN R -e "install.packages(c('ggplot2'), repos='http://cran.rstudio.com/')"
This is how I built an experimental image at
got same prob. I want to add ggplot2 and plotly packages but not really shure how to? Does anyone know?
I can't run shinyapp with plotlyOutput
Just can't understand why..
This worked fine for me and my Shiny apps once I realized I needed to add ggplot2 myself. Thanks for making this available.
I am getting this error all the time - any idea?
