I am deploying a tracking board Shiny app that will be displayed at several monitors at all times, with no user interaction. Essentially, the app detects changes in the source data via
reactiveFileReader, and the content of the application changes reactively. Ideally, these apps should stay open indefinitely without any user intervention needed. In Connect, what is the best way to avoid connection timeouts, and in the event that the connection does timeout, is there a way to refresh the app automatically?
