ShinyProxy is a novel, open source platform to deploy Shiny apps for the enterprise or larger organizations.

Why is this needed?

There is currently no valid open source alternative that offers this functionality.

What does it offer?

  • authentication
  • authorization
  • securing traffic with TLS/SSL
  • usage statistics
  • scalability

This is free and open source, is there also a paying and proprietary version?

If we can paraphrase the Discourse guys:

There is only one version of ShinyProxy – the awesome open source version. There’s no super secret special paid commercial version with better or more complete features. Because ShinyProxy is 100% open source, now and forever, it belongs to you as much as it belongs to us. That’s how community works.

The project has full documentation here:

There is a

template on Github.
