I have a shiny app that relies on the results given of a random forest from the caret package that is used in a predict() function. The results of creating the random forest would take far too long to run every time the app opens. I have saved the results of the random forest to an .Rds file, but I am not sure how to read the .Rds file in to start the application. Obviously, I would need it saved in Dropbox or something similar (not on my machine, stored localy), but whenever I try to load in from dropbox using the rdrop2 function drop_download(), it will not allow me to do so, it throws error and the session times out. If anyone can think of an easier way to load in the .Rds file, or if I could store the random forest in another type of file, I would greatly appreciate an feedback.
