I am trying to deploy a shiny app that uses a /data folder for .rds files and a /R folder for app.R as per Chapter 20 of Mastering Shiny.
However , RStudio does not seem to permit this. I can only publish from the /R directory and it does not allow me to deploy the /data folder.
If I move the .rds inside the /R folder and change the code to read from the /R folder it works fine.
Is it because this is a free account or Is there something I am missing? I would like to deploy an app with a file structure such as the following and use relative paths to allow app.R to find the ../data/my_data.rds
