Monitor a folder for updates (e.g., adding a new file) and visualize the updates in real-time. To facilitate, this template makes a clever use of the watchfiles package and reactive file reading to trigger an update when the folder changes. To trigger a change, you can press the “+” icon to add a new file to the folder, which will then be displayed in the table (listing the files name and their last modification time). Additionally, when a file is selected in this table, the contents are displayed and available for download.
