TidyX 146: Adding a download option to Shiny apps

This week, Ellis Hughes and I discuss how to add a download button to the user interface of a {shiny} app. We provide two options for completing this task:

  1. Using a downloadHandler(), which requires some additional coding but produces a nice downloadable PDF.
  2. Using the {shinyscreenshot} package, which offers a very simple button to click and produce a screen shot of the shiny page in a PNG form.
