Run a Shiny-based application within the system's default web browser.

ring_app_launch(launch.browser = TRUE)

Arguments

launch.browser

A logical value. If FALSE, a built-in browser will be launched automatically after the app is started. If TRUE, the system's default web browser is used instead. This argument only works for RStudio. See details below.

Details

launch.browser = FALSE is not recommended, as the file renaming does not work on the RStudio built-in browser when saving the data.

A workflow for the Shiny app can be found here: https://ropensci.github.io/MtreeRing/articles/app-MtreeRing.html. Most steps are demonstrated with a gif to make the workflow more understandable.

To stop the app, go to the R console and press the Escape key. You can also click the stop sign icon in the upper right corner of the RStudio console.
