I've found that
shiny.js::refresh() crashes the Shiny window if RStudio Workbench is used but not using a "regular" version of RStudio.
An example of how to use
refresh() can be found at (refresh: Refresh the page in shinyjs: Easily Improve the User Experience of Your Shiny Apps in Seconds). On my version of RStudio Workbench, clicking the "Refresh" button causes the Shiny window to close, although R remains running in the background.
Is this due to a peculiarity of my RStudio Workbench configuration or is it a general issue. Are there perhaps workarounds available?
