Adding new applications without restarting shinyproxy


Is it possible to add a new application without restarting shinyproxy? Effectively this means that the yaml file would be read again if it’s modified, or by directly communicating with shinyproxy. So far I’m not aware of this being possible.


H @samsam,

You are right this is currently not possible. For updates of existing applications there is no down time (just upgrade the docker images). When you add a new application, though, there is the downtime needed for shutting down and starting up (< 30 sec on our setups). We do plan to look into hot reloading of the application. I don’t see specific issues for adding applications a priori, but whether hot reloading for all configuration settings will be possible remains to be seen.
