Shiny app which shows what's trending in data science space on github
RStudio Cloud project
Reproducibility at RstudioCloud Server
In order to reproduce this app at rstudio cloud server, you will need to generate oauth tokens. In my case, I was getting an error which says bad credentials and error in callback url was error in uri redirect mismatch. Please follow the instructions at rstudio support link There are few steps to try on the ticket, but the one which worked for me on rstudio cloud server:
Create the .httr-oauth token on your desktop and then copy the file to a server

We will Authenticate with OAuth 2.0 which is the most secure option. In order to use OAuth option, you need Client ID and Client Secret.
