Many Bioconductor packages include shiny applications.

The best practice is, at least conceptually, to write a good package, 
and then to add a shiny interface. By this I mean that the 
non-user-interface parts of the functionality are implemented, 
documented, illustrated, and tested using functions that are defined in 
the package. Indeed, most of the shiny app is also implemented in the 
package, so that the R CMD check and other facilities available in R can 
be used to provide some confidence that the underlying code is correct.
