Installing is as easy as setting an environment name and region for the install. SSL will be provisioned automatically for the environment and your install will be up and running in just a few minutes.

Once the install is complete your server is online. An example R Shiny application is included with the install.

Applications you develop can be uploaded to the /srv/shiny-apps folder on the server either via SFTP or directly uploading and managing files through the Config section of the server.

You can find a variety of examples to work from at GitHub - rstudio/shiny-examples and https://shiny.rstudio.com/gallery
