I am trying to deploy a Shiny app that is using Reticulate to access a huggingface SentenceTransformers model to undertake a semantic search. I can get the app running locally, however, when trying to deploy it to shiny.io I get the following error:
Downloaded 360 bytes...Error in uploadCloudBundle(client, application$application_id, bundlePath) : Could not upload file. In addition: There were 50 or more warnings (use warnings() to see the first 50) > warnings() Warning messages: 1: In utils::tar(bundlePath, files = NULL, compression = "gzip", ... : storing paths of more than 100 bytes is not portable: ‘./my_env/Lib/site-packages/huggingface_hub/inference/_generated/__pycache__/_async_client.cpython-311.pyc’ 2: In utils::tar(bundlePath, files = NULL, compression = "gzip", ... : storing paths of more than 100 bytes is not portable: ‘./my_env/Lib/site-packages/joblib/externals/loky/backend/__pycache__/_posix_reduction.cpython-311.pyc’
I have pasted only the first two warnings here, but there are 50+ as the error message says! Is there a workaround for this?
