Shiny app not launching after R/Rstudio and pkgs upgrade

Getting the following error after launching Shiny app after R/Rstudio and pkgs upgrade.The app was working fine all this time.

Error in get(name, envir = asNamespace(pkg), inherits = FALSE) :

object '%OR%' not found

Could you make a reproducible example?

This will make it easier for folks to replicate your issue and offer suggestions to solve it.

I think the error message points to this part of my code ---

%then% <- shiny:::%OR% #create a %then% operator for shiny::validation to display one validation error message at a time

I understand that %OR% is an internal object of shiny .maybe not present in the new versions.
I go back to the old version and get this.

function (x, y)
if (is.null(x) || isTRUE(
else x

But how to get my app working in the new versions which are as follows:

• New R version 3.6.3
• New R-studio Version 1.3.1093

Even replacing the code like this is not helping me lauch the app.

%then% <- function(a, b) {
if (is.null(a)) b else a

this must be related to mismatched shiny versions
%OR% doesnt exist in 1.6, it was removed
Replace %OR% with %||% from rlang (#3172) · rstudio/shiny@e44a9b1 (
