Reuse an existing Shiny Bookmark folder on server with new state input.rds and values.rds

shiny

#1

Hello helpful Shiny friends,

I have users who embed Shiny Bookmarks links in their web pages. Sometimes the bookmark they've made needs an edit. I want override the newly created state$dir variable with the original link's directory. I know I can overwrite the input.rds and values.rds with some custom code but I'd like to take advantage of the machinery already built in the bookmark functions to compose those config files properly. Included is altered example from Shiny site. I've added code to the onBookmark() where I'd like to be able to make the change. Thanks in advance for any time you spend on this question.

ui <- function(request) {
  fluidPage(
    sidebarPanel(
      sliderInput("n", "Value to add", min = 0, max = 100, value = 50),
      actionButton("add", "Add"), br(), br(),
      bookmarkButton()
    ),
    mainPanel(
      h4("Sum of all previous slider values:", textOutput("sum"))
    )
  )
}

server <- function(input, output, session) {
  vals <- reactiveValues(sum = 0)
  
  #### Save extra values in state$values when we bookmark
  onBookmark(
    function(state) {
    print (session$dir)
    dir_root <- '/user/'
    dir <- '67acc0cf129049c9'
    session$dir <- paste0(dir_root,dir)
  })
  
  #### Read values from state$values when we restore

onRestore(function(state) {
  vals$sum <- state$values$currentSum
})

#### Exclude the add button from bookmarking
setBookmarkExclude("add")

observeEvent(input$add, {
  vals$sum <- vals$sum + input$n
