Can I use Python on shinyapps.io?

Follow

The shinyapps.io service has Python 2.7 and 3.5 on the system, per the admin guide. If you use the `reticulate` package, you should be able to install any Python package that doesn't have additional systems dependencies, as long as you use the right name.

For an example of using `py_install()` to install a Python package, see this Community post.

It is not currently possible to install a Python package that has additional systems dependencies, but you could file an issue in the shinyapps.io package dependencies repo if you wish to get one added in the future.
