We've just started using the server bookmarking state available in RStudio Connect - that is, saving the application state (and key variables) to a folder on the server rather than encoding into the URL.
It's great - works well and gives us huge flexibility.
But there are two features that would improve this:
- Ability to retrieve bookmark information from R
- Ability to manage (delete) bookmarks
It would be great to build a table of bookmarks for a given app and include this within the app - with key details for each bookmark. This would allow the users to view existing bookmarks, which are easily lost and give quick links back to app states
Bookmarks which include large data frames / input files take up a non-trivial amount of space. This could quickly grow out of control.
Any thoughts on how the above could be achieved?
