Common dependencies for Shiny Server


If you are installing Shiny Server or Shiny Server Pro on an offline server, you may need dependencies installed in order for Shiny Server to install correctly. Below you will find a list of common dependencies for major distributions – note that your requirements may be different depending on the system you’re installing on.

In general, we recommend installing the latest versions of these dependencies available; however, you may find that older versions work as well.

All operating systems

On all operating systems, you will need to have R installed. You can find the necessary binaries or source code here. You will also need to have the shiny package installed in R - see here for more on how to install it. You can download the package source from CRAN and install the package manually on the server.
