Is it possible to install a python installation inside a deployed app?


I am trying to deploy an app with a Shiny based frontend and python based backend. I need very few python packages (just pandas and its dependencies). I was wondering if anybody knows how to get a python installation inside the container so it can be triggered using a command such as system("pythonpath")

Thanks in advance


From a support article:

The service has Python 3.8 on the system, per the admin guide. If you use the reticulate package, you should be able to install any Python package that doesn't have additional systems dependencies, as long as you use the right name.

Also, you could use Shiny for python which already supports, although, it is in alpha version.
