Recently, a customer of 15+ years contacted me requesting technical assistance in regards to an upcoming book launch.
In the book, the customer references a few links that are to redirect readers to a website of on-page apps containing interactive charts and graphs. Readers are able to visit website, add their own data, and then view the same data as well as adjust the data using charting and graphing controls.
To achieve the interactive charting and graphing functionality for each app on website, this customer chose to use Shiny Server from RStudio.com. I had not realized the full capability of the RStudio service offering as a robust professional data science solution for reporting.
Nevertheless, the customer contacted me because they preferred not to use RStudio Connect and Shinyapps.io in favor of desiring to use Shiny Server Pro. However, the one catch with using Shiny Server Pro is that it requires a Linux Server — this customer is a Windows shop. 😳
