#' Get or set Shiny options
#' \code{getShinyOption} retrieves the value of a Shiny option.
#' \code{shinyOptions} sets the value of Shiny options; it can also be used to
#' return a list of all currently-set Shiny options.
#' There is a global option set, which is available by default. When a Shiny
#' application is run with \code{\link{runApp}}, that option set is duplicated
#' and the new option set is available for getting or setting values. If options
#' are set from global.R, app.R, ui.R, or server.R, or if they are set from
#' inside the server function, then the options will be scoped to the
#' application. When the application exits, the new option set is discarded and
#' the global option set is restored.
#' @param ... Options to set, with the form \code{name = value}.
#' @examples
#' \dontrun{
#' shinyOptions(myOption = 10)
#' getShinyOption("myOption")
#' }
