Steps to deploy a Twitterytics-Shiny app
- Register an account at RStudio's Shiny server (it usually take a few days for them to setup), or install a Shiny server on your own
- Login to your Shiny server, and clone this repo to the ShinnyApps folder following Joe Cheng's guide and rename it to something meaningful (the hashtag is a quite straightforward choice)
- Setup a Google Spreadsheet archive for your tweets using TAGS-5, and publish this archive to make it accessible for Shiny. Record the Google Spreadsheet key for later setup.
- On your Shiny server, edit a few settings in settings.txt
- Google Spreadsheet key
- Run preprocessing.R to process data, or run repeat_pre.R if you wish to automatically update your data every hour.
- Check http://glimmer.rstudio.com/your_username/folder_name, and see whether everything works.
