RStudio Server - IDE for R Lang
RStudio is a new integrated development environment (IDE) for R. RStudio combines an intuitive user interface with powerful coding tools to help you get the most out of R.
RStudio brings together everything you need to be productive with R in a single, customizable environment. Its intuitive interface and powerful coding tools help you get work done faster.
RStudio is available for all major platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It can even run alongside R on a server, enabling multiple users to access the RStudio IDE using a web browser.
Like R, RStudio is available under an open source license that guarantees the freedom to share and change the software, and to make sure it remains free software for all its users.
Collaboratively develop software in R with this browser based IDE
Is there a way to run R and RStudio while running Cloudron on a server?
Thanks for the support.
@drml I moved your question here. Currently, there is no way to run RStudio Server until someone packages it for Cloudron.
I found a Dockerfile at https://community.rstudio.com/t/dockerfile-for-rstudio-server/10753 . I have never used R, so maybe someone who knows it can tell me what it's used for.

@girish I have a good friend at the BBC that uses it for data journalism there. Admittedly, not looked into it further but sounds like the de-facto tool in that area.
From what I understand it’s often used for analysis like MatLab. Never used it though.
I use RStudio for spatial data analysis, dashboard creation, and generating reports. Would be nice to see it on Cloudron.

@thpuffin +1 for that! R is very versatile and used for many scientific projects, even website building, paper writing. Be great to have R studio on Cloudron!
@avatar1024 For what it's worth, my unofficial VSCode app has R support built in: https://github.com/mitchellurgero/cloudron-vscode-package if it's something you need right now. It's no rstudio for R but it may get the job done.
Hi, just to bump this and share a link to the "rocker project" (https://rocker-project.org/) since they are the standard for maintaining containerized R images. See the image rocker/rstudio
I personally use R for tons of stuff, like interacting with APIs (httr package), creating my own APIs (plumbr), cleaning and transforming datasets (tidyverse) and creating web apps (shiny)
would love to see it packaged in a cloudron app
