Run a Shiny application from a URL

Download and launch a Shiny application that is hosted at a downloadable URL. The Shiny application must be saved in a .zip, .tar, or .tar.gz file. The Shiny application files must be contained in a subdirectory in the archive. For example, the files might be myapp/server.r and myapp/ui.r.

Usage
runUrl(url, filetype = NULL, subdir = NULL, port = 8100,
    launch.browser = getOption("shiny.launch.browser", interactive()))
Arguments
url
URL of the application.
filetype

port
The TCP port that the application should listen on. Defaults to port 8100.
launch.browser
If true, the system's default web browser will be launched automatically after the app is started. Defaults to true in interactive sessions only.
