Many containers created after multiple clicking on a link to Shiny App



I noticed that before shiny app is open, making initial opening by clicking many times on a link to the app will create multiple containers, while the app will open only in one tab.

For example, if I will click three times on the link to the shiny app then the app will open in one tab, but three containers will be created.

In such a case, in JSON file with usage statistics, an event “AppStart” is triggered three times in a row. Closing the tab with app will trigger three “AppStop”.

Is there a way to prevent such multiple creation of containers?
Thanks in advance.


Hi @malwina,

Thanks for reporting this. A fix will be available in the next release (0.9.3).



Ok. Thanks a lot.

Best wishes,
