For the Medical Marijuana industry, enterprise software is often unviable because most terms of service prohibit violating Federal law. Open-source software like R and Shiny provide an oppurtunity to build enterprise quality applications without terms of service restrictions.

At CannaData Solutions, we use Shiny to build an enterprise quality point-of-sales, inventory and patient management applications for the Medical Marijuana industry. We will discuss:

  • Using HTML templates
  • Integrating form validation Javascript libraries like parsley.js and Cleave.js into Shiny
  • Using R packages and modules to organize complex collections of Shiny applications
  • Securely deploying Shiny applications in the AWS Virtual Private Cloud
  • Effectively explaining your Shiny app to new users with rintrojs [@ganz]
  • Writing documentation with bookdown [@bookdown]
