I'm working on a shiny app to allow user selecting easily only a few files on a ftp and to download them. So far I was only using functions to filter the data and to download them (with
download.files for example) directly with R, then I thought it could be nice to use shiny to do it...
I have build the interface and the filter but I'm struggling with the downloading part. I can't figure out how to tell to shiny download the selected files from the ftp to the computer of the guy using the app. Would it be even possible? As a solution I may provide a script that the user can run on its personal computer to download the filtered files from the ftp.
Sorry, I may provide some code if needed but the question is kinda 'more general',
Thank you for your help & sorry if it's not the right place to ask,
