Defines functions createWebDependency processDeps

Documented in createWebDependency

#' Create a web dependency
#' Ensure that a file-based HTML dependency (from the htmltools package) can be
#' served over Shiny's HTTP server. This function works by using
#' [addResourcePath()] to map the HTML dependency's directory to a
#' URL.
#' @param dependency A single HTML dependency object, created using
#'   [htmltools::htmlDependency()]. If the `src` value is named,
#'   then `href` and/or `file` names must be present.
#' @param scrubFile If TRUE (the default), remove `src$file` for the
#'   dependency. This prevents the local file path from being sent to the client
#'   when dynamic web dependencies are used. If FALSE, don't remove
#'   `src$file`. Setting it to FALSE should be needed only in very unusual
#'   cases.
#' @return A single HTML dependency object that has an `href`-named element
#'   in its `src`.
#' @export
