I've been fiddling around with Shiny for a day or so now as I've decided to use the framework to create a website featuring "live" data (data updates automatically once weekly).
How exactly would I go about hosting a Shiny application with a CRON job (for the automation bit) that would invoke code that downloads a PDF (from online) and scrapes the PDF for data, which is outputted into a CSV file (a single file that's being updated on a weekly basis)? Ignore the functionality bit of the aforementioned as I'm only curious to know how I'd be able to run such a website -- and deploy it.
I do have a personal server (a Synology NAS DS220+) and I'm thinking of hosting it from there.
I may have some additional questions but as of now, I would appreciate if someone could give me some guidance.
