Docker container for Shiny Server
The image is also available from Docker Hub.
To run a container with Shiny Server
docker run -d -p 3838:3838 sergii/docker-shiny-server
If you run
docker-machine you need to find IP of the running:
docker-machine ip machine_name
Or just generate a complete URL of Shiny server:
echo http://$(docker-machine ip machine_name):3838
In order to run your application you can use Docker Volumes
docker run -d -p 3838:3838 -v ~/pop:/srv/shiny-server/pop sergii/docker-shiny-server
In this case, our application is located in ~/pop. Running application should be available by URL:
echo http://$(docker-machine ip machine_name):3838/pop `
Now you can just edit you R files, without a need to rebuild an image every time. Be aware, folder sharing works for OSX docker-machine automatically only if your project is located in a home directory.
