Building high performance Shiny apps


#1

Hi,

Inspired by Sean's talk at RStudio on scaling Shiny, https://www.rstudio.com/resources/videos/scaling-shiny/ I was hoping people could share their tips and tricks for building high performance shiny apps

Two tips that I know of are:

  1. Use profvis to profile the r code https://www.rstudio.com/resources/webinars/profvis-profiling-tools-for-faster-r-code/
  2. Use CDN to speed up delivery of static assets https://community.rstudio.com/t/plans-for-a-shiny-book/1080/12?u=iain

I am wondering what the fastest shiny app one could build that would simply display a table containing data pulled from a database based on a parameter passed in the URL (similar to this page https://www.targetvalidation.org/target/ENSG00000197635)

Thanks

Iain
