\title{Run a Shiny application from a URL}
\usage{
runUrl(url, filetype = NULL, subdir = NULL, destdir = NULL, ...)
runGist(gist, destdir = NULL, ...)
runGitHub(repo, username = getOption("github.user"), ref = "master",
subdir = NULL, destdir = NULL, ...)
}
\arguments{
\item{url}{URL of the application.}
\item{filetype}{The file type (\code{".zip"}, \code{".tar"}, or
\code{".tar.gz"}. Defaults to the file extension taken from the url.}
\item{subdir}{A subdirectory in the repository that contains the app. By
default, this function will run an app from the top level of the repo, but
you can use a path such as `\code{"inst/shinyapp"}.}
\item{destdir}{Directory to store the downloaded application files. If \code{NULL}
(the default), the application files will be stored in a temporary directory
and removed when the app exits}
\item{...}{Other arguments to be passed to \code{\link{runApp}()}, such as
\code{port} and \code{launch.browser}.}
\item{gist}{The identifier of the gist. For example, if the gist is
https://gist.github.com/jcheng5/3239667, then \code{3239667},
\code{'3239667'}, and \code{'https://gist.github.com/jcheng5/3239667'} are
all valid values.}
\item{repo}{Name of the repository.}
\item{username}{GitHub username. If \code{repo} is of the form
\code{"username/repo"}, \code{username} will be taken from \code{repo}.}
\item{ref}{Desired git reference. Could be a commit, tag, or branch name.
Defaults to \code{"master"}.}

\description{
\code{runUrl()} downloads and launches 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 the root
directory or a subdirectory in the archive. For example, the files might be
\code{myapp/server.r} and \code{myapp/ui.r}. The functions \code{runGitHub()}
and \code{runGist()} are based on \code{runUrl()}, using URL's from GitHub
(\url{https://github.com}) and GitHub gists (\url{https://gist.github.com}),
respectively.
