RStudio: Your Gateway to R

I am frequently asked by statistics learners for open source software recommendations. My advice is always to check out RStudio, a free and open source integrated development environment for R. You can run RStudio on your desktop (Windows, Mac, or Linux) or even over the web using RStudio Server.

Major features of RStudio include:
  • Syntax highlighting, code completion, and smart indentation
  • Execute R code directly from the source editor
  • Easily manage multiple working directories using projects
  • Quickly navigate code using type ahead search and go to definition
  • Workspace browser and data viewer
  • Plot history, zooming, and flexible image and PDF export
  • Integrated R help and documentation
  • Sweave authoring including one-click PDF preview
  • Searchable command history
  • Works with any version of R (2.11.1 or greater)
  • Runs on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even over the web using RStudio Server
  • Integrated with Git and Subversion for version control
  • Free and open source (AGPLv3 license)
RStudio is your gateway to learning and using R. Follow the link below to download and install your copy of RStudio now!
