I am currently trying to use
rocker/shiny to deploy an application. I use also the
config to ease configuration in deployement.
R_CONFIG_ACTIVE env variable is defined in the Docke file but is not found by the shiny app.
It seems that an environment variable cannot be pass easily to a running app. There is an old discussion on that : https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/shiny-discuss/nNs0kztwdWo
Is this still the case ? Is there a configuration that could help ?
Is there something that can be done outside of R code ? I mean that config helps configure behavior per environment ouside of the R code. I would have thought to do something like that in my Dockerfile, or at run
docker run -e R_CONFIG_ACTIVE= ...
A workaround is to not use rocker/shiny as it seems to be a limitation of shiny server (for security reason)
