Session timeout warning for shiny-server pro

shinyserverpro

Hello,

How do you have a warning or alert to inform the user before reaching the timeout when using shiny server pro? Should we use Javascript for this purpose? Please advise.

Thanks for your help.

From comments from @ian and @Jay:

Session timeouts are measured by checking incoming and outgoing data on the server. Unfortunately, Shiny Server doesn't surface this in a way that can be shone in a shiny app at this time.

We'd recommend looking into writing this into your application code by writing the start time to a variable to then check and display a popup when desired. You could use the shinyalert package to make a pop-up: https://rdrr.io/cran/shinyalert/

Here's the vignette and the more package info:
