Arguments

appDir

Directory containing application. Defaults to current working directory.

appFiles

The files and directories to bundle and deploy (only if upload = TRUE). Can be NULL, in which case all the files in the directory containing the application are bundled. Takes precedence over appFileManifest if both are supplied.

appFileManifest

An alternate way to specify the files to be deployed; a file containing the names of the files, one per line, relative to the appDir.

appPrimaryDoc

If the application contains more than one document, this parameter indicates the primary one, as a path relative to appDir. Can be NULL, in which case the primary document is inferred from the contents being deployed.

appSourceDoc

If the application is composed of static files (e.g HTML), this parameter indicates the source document, if any, as a fully qualified path. Deployment information returned by deployments() is associated with the source document.

appName

Name of application (names must be unique within an account). Defaults to the base name of the specified appDir.

appTitle

Free-form descriptive title of application. Optional; if supplied, will often be displayed in favor of the name. When deploying a new application, you may supply only the appTitle to receive an auto-generated appName.

appId

If updating an application, the ID of the application being updated. Optional unless updating an app owned by another user.

contentCategory

Optional; the kind of content being deployed (e.g. "plot" or "site").

account

Account to deploy application to. This parameter is only required for the initial deployment of an application when there are multiple accounts configured on the system (see accounts).

server

Server name. Required only if you use the same account name on multiple servers.

upload

If TRUE (the default) then the application is uploaded from the local system prior to deployment. If FALSE then it is re-deployed using the last version that was uploaded.

recordDir

Directory where publish record is written. Can be NULL in which case record will be written to the location specified with appDir.

launch.browser

If true, the system's default web browser will be launched automatically after the app is started. Defaults to TRUE in interactive sessions only.

logLevel

One of "quiet", "normal" or "verbose"; indicates how much logging to the console is to be performed. At "quiet" reports no information; at "verbose", a full diagnostic log is captured.

lint

Lint the project before initiating deployment, to identify potentially problematic code?

metadata

Additional metadata fields to save with the deployment record. These fields will be returned on subsequent calls to deployments().

forceUpdate

If TRUE, update any previously-deployed app without asking. If FALSE, ask to update. If unset, defaults to the value of getOption("rsconnect.force.update.apps", FALSE).

python

Full path to a python binary for use by reticulate. Required if reticulate is a dependency of the app being deployed. The specified python binary will be invoked to determine its version and to list the python packages installed in the environment.
