Short Description
Fork of the official Docker image project to create version-tagged images
Full Description

Docker for Shiny Server

This is a Dockerfile for Shiny Server on Debian "testing" for Shiny Server. It is based on the r-base image.

The official image is available from Docker Hub.

This unoffical fork creates tagged images on Docker hub for specific specific versions of Shiny Server, so downstream builds can have stable base images.

The latest tagged image is whereisaaron/shiny:1.5.4.841.

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

Usage:

To run a temporary container with Shiny Server:

docker run --rm -p 3838:3838 whereisaaron/shiny:1.5.4.841

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/ \
    whereisaaron/shiny:1.5.4.841

If you have an app in /srv/shinyapps/appdir, you can run the app by visiting http://localhost:3838/appdir/. (If using boot2docker, visit http://192.168.59.103:3838/appdir/)

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 (-p 80:3838):

docker run -d -p 80:3838 \
    -v /srv/shinyapps/:/srv/shiny-server/ \
    -v /srv/shinylog/:/var/log/shiny-server/ \
    whereisaaron/shiny:1.5.4.841
