Shiny now supports bookmarking! Users can save the state of an application and get a URL that can be used to return to the application in that state. You can even share the URL so that others to get to the application in the bookmarked state. There are two kinds of bookmarks: the state can either be saved on the server, or the state can be encoded in a URL. In this webinar you’ll learn how Shiny bookmarking works and how to use it in your Shiny applications.
