Avoiding Cold Start Problem

My App Unfortunately takes 2-3 seconds to launch. This is partially because it is reading in data, though a small amount, and partially because the reactivity is all filtering off their defaults. I am running shinyproxy inside docker. Is there any way to configure the system to keep a certain number of each app always running and then route new users to them? This would improve the user’s experience of the application because it would reduce the time until the app is usable.


Hi @cbagg,

This is currently not supported, but other people have voiced the same concern: https://github.com/openanalytics/shinyproxy/issues/89
Make sure to add your thoughts there, that will help us to identify an appropriate solution.
