A quick look at RStudio’s R notebooks

A quick demo of RStudio’s R Notebooks shown by John Mount (of Win-Vector LLC, a statistics, data science, and algorithms consulting and training firm).


It looks like some of the new in-line display behavior is back-ported to R Markdown and some of the difference is the delayed running and different level of interactivity in the HTML document. This makes it a bit hard to call out which RStudio’s improvements are “R notebooks” versus “R markdown”, but it means there is a lot of new functionality available. I’ve updated the video to reflect the subtlty (unfortunately on YouTube that means a new URL as you can’t replace videos).

And some just in case decelerations/clarifications/reminders: this video is not from RStudio (the company), and Rstudio client (the software) is a user interface that is separate from the R analysis system itself.
