StatET is an Eclipse based IDE (integrated development environment) for R.
It provides an Eclipse-based integrated development environment for the R language and in order to do so also develops components for the integration of R and Java. All typical views and editors required for an R IDE are in scope. Other statistical programming languages are out of scope for this project.
The software offers a set of mature tools for R coding and package building. This includes a fully integrated R Console, Object Browser and R Help System.
Editor for R Scripts
- Syntax highlighting (with custom style groups).
- Highlight matching bracket and “intelligent doubleclick-strategy” (e.g. selecting content inside brackets).
- Text folding of Roxygen comments, function definitions and other blocks.
- Outline showing function-, class- and other definitions (Outline view and Quick Outline).
- Commenting: toggle comment and add documentation comment (‘##’).
- Navigating in code: goto matching bracket and structural selection.
- Correcting of line indentation.
- Customizable ‘Smart Insert’ mode with
- Auto indent on typing (new line and brackets).
- Auto indent when pasting.
- Automatically close of brackets, infix operators and strings.
- Content assistant to insert element names, function arguments, Roxygen tags, file paths and more.
- Marking and renaming occurrences of current variable.
- Syntax checking as you type.
- Context sensitive R help and R element information.
- Further small tools like an action to insert assignment operator (‘<-‘).
- All features are comfortable customizable under StatET > Source Editors. This includes features provided by Eclipse Platform, e.g. spelling, tabs/spaces.
Advanced Tools for R Scripts
- Documenting: generator for Roxygen comments for functions and S4 classes.
- Refactoring: refactoring methods for R code in R projects to improve easily and fast its structure or to convert functions to S4 methods.
Launching/R Console/R Interaction
- Central configuration of R environments.
- New integrated console (Rterm and RJ):
- Queue for non-blocking work flow.
- Command history.
- Input line with editing features like in the R Editor and access to history items.
- Configurable tracking features for history and transcripts.
- Object Browser to inspect the elements in R sessions.
- Launch type for R CMD (as small utility).
- Hyperlinks to the source file in the console, if syntax errors occurred (and information available).
- Run R code (submit to R):
- Complete R-script from R Editor or Project Explorer (without opening the file) directly or via source-command.
- Current line or selected text from R Editor.
- Entire commands or function definition.
(in addition variants with goto console).
- R Package manager (GUI).
Visual Debugger for R
- Simple management of breakpoints with automatic update in R; no changes in R script required.
- Conditional breakpoints.
- Clearly presented call stack / traceback (Debug View) with direct access to:
- Variables of the selected frame and
- Source code and instruction pointer (R Editor), if available.
- Stepping through the source code.
StatET provides an integrated graphic device. Beside the integrated graphic device, you can also use several other (OS specific) devices like windows.
