Using RMark in R Shiny

Postby danikaschube » Sat Feb 04, 2023 2:45 pm

I have used RMark for many years in R and am familiar with how it works on the regular R platform and in R studio. I have created an app in R Shiny that works on my desktop. However, when I pull it up to I get the error message that mark cannot be found. For example, the log says:
sh: 1: mark: not found

I have set the Markpath in shiny to:
MarkPath <<-"www/"

As I mentioned above, this works on my desktop but for some reason it can't find the mark.exe file (either mark32.exe or mark64.exe) when I pull it up. I have included both these files in my upload.

I think there is something I am doing wrong when setting the path in the upload.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give. If you need more information, I am happy to provide it.

Most likely looking for mark.exe on the shiny server. You'll need to set MarkPath variable to your local location for mark.exe. Not how that will interact with shiny. Do a search on shiny apps that work with external software.
