7 of the Best Free Graphical User Interfaces for R
R is an open source programming language and software
environment for statistical computing and graphics. It consists of a
language together with a run-time environment with a debugger,
graphics, access to system functions, and scripting.
The R language is extremely popular for developing statistical
software, and is also frequently used as an analysis tool amongst data
miners. R is an implementation of the S programming language, developed
by Bell Laboratories, adding lexical
scoping semantics. R offers a wide variety of statistical and
graphical techniques including time series
analysis, linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests,
clustering, and more). Combined with a large collection of intermediate
tools for data analysis, good data handling and storage, general matrix
calculation toolbox, R offers a coherent and well developed system
which is highly extensible.
Many statisticians use R with the command line. However, the
command line can be quite daunting to a beginner of R. Fortunately,
there are many different graphical user interfaces available for R
which help to flatten the learning curve.
To provide an insight into the quality of software available
for Linux, we have compiled a list of 7 of the best graphical user
interfaces for R. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for
anyone who wants to quickly get to grips with this programming language
and environment. We give our highest recommendation to RStudio.
Now, let's explore the 7 graphical user interfaces tools at
hand. For each
application we have compiled its own portal page, a full description
with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots, together with
links to relevant resources and reviews.
