cloud-config script to setup Rstudio server and Shiny server on Ubuntu 14.04 on Digital Ocean
#cloud-config
# In order to access RStudio server via the web interface, you must log on with
# a user account that allows password access. This script does not add that user
# by default. You may either ssh as root into the server and `adduser` as
# normal, or script a user addition here:
# users:
# - name: # username #
# lock-passwd: false # allow login with password
# passwd: # hashed password #
# Add apt mirror to get the latest version of R necessary for Shiny

This is totally indebted to Dean Attali's tutorial on how to manually set up RStudio server and Shiny on DO.

line 16: Using only the short form to identify the key seems to be ambiguous and renders whole package signing useless:

# gpg --receive-keys E084DAB9
gpg: key 4359ED62E084DAB9: public key "Totally Legit Signing Key <mallory@example.org>" imported
gpg: key 51716619E084DAB9: public key "Michael Rutter <marutter@gmail.com>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 2
gpg:               imported: 2

Use the full fingerprint instead, E298A3A825C0D65DFD57CBB651716619E084DAB9.
