shinyapps.io is a hosted platform that makes
it easy for you to share your Shiny applications on the web in just a few
minutes. Many customers use shinyapps.io to prove out some concepts, build out a
prototype, or just run it for a short period of time for their own purposes,
while others are using it as a core component of their analytical offerings
within a larger online property.
The service runs in the cloud on shared servers that are operated by RStudio.
Each application is self-contained and operates on either data that is uploaded
with the application, or data that the code pulls from third-party data stores,
such as databases or web services.
