问题描述:

How can I access cookies and other browser-related session data from within a Shiny app?

With session$clientData, we are able to get other client details like host,port,query param...

Is there any other way to get cookies in shiny app?

网友答案:

To build on the great comments, you can use the js.cookie.js package with the Shiny.OnInputChange() function to return cookies.

An example app is here: https://beta.rstudioconnect.com/iwallace/cookies/

--ui.r--

library(shiny)
library(shinydashboard)

fluidPage(
tags$head(tags$script(src="js.cookie.js")),
# a shiny element to display unformatted text
box(title ="click the gray square to view cookies!",    verbatimTextOutput("results"),actionButton("go","click me")),

# javascript code to send data to shiny server
tags$script('
          document.getElementById("go").onclick = function() {
          var number = Math.random();

          Cookies.set(\'name\', \'value\', { expires: 7 });
          Cookies.set(\'cookie_2\', \'value\', { expires: 7 });

          var my_cookie = Cookies.get(); 

          Shiny.onInputChange("mydata", my_cookie);
          };
          ')

)

--server.r--

library(shiny)

shinyServer(function(input, output,session) {
output$results = renderPrint({
input$mydata
})

})
