I planned on using RStudio Cloud for an upcoming demo. The demo required:
- A few R packages installed
- Python modules for reticulate to be installed
- A data folder ~/.zipline/...more_here where data was required to be stored
I was able to get everything set up on my base project that I was planning on giving users a link to, but when I opened up a private browser and tried to test it out, it seems that only R specific things like the packages persisted.
The python modules, virtual environment, and data were all gone!
Is there anything I can do? Is this intended? The idea was to be a (way) more user friendly version of docker for this kind of demo that required a lot of upfront work to get going.
