I’ve got my Shinyproxy app working, but I’m running into an issue.
In my Shiny app, I want to use RSelenium to scrape data from a dynamically loaded webpage. Previously, before using Shinyproxy and I was just using shiny server this worked. In my R file I have this code:
remDr <- remoteDriver(port = 4445L)
I use docker to allow this to happen by pulling the docker image I need and doing the following:
sudo docker run -d -p 4445:4444 selenium/standalone-firefox:2.53.0
Then when I run my app, it works.
However, now that I am trying to use ShinyProxy, when I test the app using
sudo docker run -p 3838:3838 openanalytics/shinyproxy-template R -e ‘shiny::runApp("/root/Shiny")’
… the R script runs and throws the error:
Error in checkError: Undefined error in httr call. httr output: Failed to connect to localhost port 4445: Connection refused.
I’m assuming this is because the app can’t see this port now that it is container form?
Thanks in advance!
