"Great IDE for programming in R"

What do you like best?

Rstudio is one of the few IDEs that exist for programming in R because it is a very recent language and still little known, for this the editor Rstudio although it has little development time I think it is an application that is very well built and that works suitably for the creation of large projects using R as a language.

Technically it is very similar to other IDE created for other languages so if you are a programmer you probably do not find it hard to understand. The application in terms of configuration seemed complete and has all the features that one needs to build an efficient workspace in any IDE.

On the one hand it allows the change of appearance to a darker theme, something that we appreciate those of us who have a sight that gets tired easily when programming in environments with a lot of light. It also has a very useful command console for the execution or compilation of the project.

What do you dislike?

Sincerely, I found it to be a very well-built application that has nothing to send to other IDE, Rstudio provides an environment to program in R that offers everything necessary for the creation and debug of any project. Maybe silly but you call it something negative it could be the default theme that although I like it, it could be a dark one by default since most programmers prefer a dark one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend using RStudio not only because you really do not have an option since it is the only IDE alternative for R that is worthwhile, if not because it is really a good IDE that offers everything necessary for the creation of any project in this language, In addition the IDE has several versions, free and enterprise, but you can try it before buying it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sincerely, I found it to be a very well-built application that has nothing to send to other IDE, Rstudio provides an environment to program in R that offers everything necessary for the creation and debug of any project.

"A great tool to run you R files and visualize them"

What do you like best?

1. It helps in saving the script as and when you progress

2. it gives the ability to run any single line or multiple lines together which helps a lot in debugging

3. The variable environment which shows the value the variable holds which helps in understanding the code better

4. the packages window gives details about the packages and the functions available along with the

5. the ability to save export the plots at my ease is a really cool feature which helps me a lot when a huge is script is being executed. this way i dont have to scroll up to the line like i would have to do in R

What do you dislike?

the only thing that i dislike is the amount of memory it take, but i believe that would depend on how large a dataset one would use for analysis

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool helps by providing multiple options of visualizing your scripts along with the work space variables and a command prompt .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps in running r scripts with ease as well as debugging the programs without much hassle. The output from these scripts are of high value and an asset to the organization

"Mapeo con RStudio"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor a la hora de mapear con RStudio es la facilidad con la que puedes adecuar tus datos a lo que necesitas expresar. Siendo un lenguaje tan rápido de aprender, con Rstudio y sus herramientas solo debes tener claro cómo plasmar tu idea para que los otros lo entiendan, sin duda RStudio te ayudará en ello, solo hay que aprovecharlo.

What do you dislike?

Un aspecto a mejorar es el diseño de los gráficos, en este caso de los mapas. Con los cambios que existen en los distintos software de este tipo, Rstuido debe fijar su norte a una mayor calidad en los gráficos que genera.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Al trabajar con estudios de mercado, necesito encontrar distintas formas de expresar las variables que uso. Por ello con un simple NPS en escala nacional tuve la oportunidad de graficarlo en un mapa geográfico el cual me ayudó a ver el comportamiento de este indicador en el país, incluyendo por Estados y Municipios.

"Por que deberías usar Rstudio!"

What do you like best?

RStudio es increíble. Me encanta el hecho de que sea de código abierto, y funciona a la perfección con R. Hay tantos paquetes desarrollados por otros que se pueden obtener fácilmente de CRAN o Bioconductor, por lo que realizar análisis es muy intuitivo y fácil de usar. Todas las funciones también vienen con buena documentación y un montón de ejemplos para seguir a lo largo, que fue tremendamente útil cuando estaba empezando como un usuario principiante lats año.

What do you dislike?

A veces encuentro que escribir tus propios paquetes o programas para hacer cálculos no es tan sencillo. Por ejemplo, intenté escribir una función que clasificara un conjunto de productos y realizara un cálculo de similitud entre los proveedores. Escribir nuevas funciones desde cero fue un poco difícil para mí, ya que no encontré muy buena documentación que fuera fácil de seguir. He tenido que confiar en los paquetes de otros, que también han funcionado bien.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitivamente recomendable - es gratis para todos, lo que es especialmente un gran beneficio para los estudiantes. Utilícelo más en clases para exponer a los estudiantes a una variedad de tareas de visualización, modelado y minería de datos.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estoy usando RStudio para ejecutar análisis predictivos, específicamente estoy tratando de predecir las ventas para una semana determinada basado en predictores tales como el número de visitas a nuestro sitio web, los enlaces en los que los usuarios hacen clic, su historial de compras, etc. RStudio tiene muy buenas funciones para construir modelos de regresión y aprendizaje de máquina para este tipo de trabajo. Me di cuenta de que el mayor beneficio es que es gratuito. Anteriormente usaba Stata, por lo que tuve que pagar.

"RStudio review"

What do you like best?

RStudio is an amazing statistical software to use today. It is not only good for basic data analysis and visualization but also for more sophisticated statistical modeling and inference. I use RStudio for both my research projects and teaching and students love it as well. The best part about RStudio is that it is open-source (hence free). It also has several libraries with built-in functions that are useful.

What do you dislike?

The main thing that I dislike about R and RStudio is the file handling aspect. Sometimes files that are read into RStudio need to be manipulated in some ways to apply certain techniques (like ANOVA or Analysis of Variance). I wish this was simpler as in other software packages like SPSS. Another minor thing is that the learning curve may be a little steeper for undergraduate students (every function and use is not as intuitive).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend - it is free for all, which is especially a huge benefit for students. Use it more in classes to expose students to a variety of visualization, modeling and data mining tasks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use RStudio to perform both simple and complex statistical analyses for my research projects and also teach courses on Business Statistics and Data Science using it. Students love it and it is relatively easy to learn if you have some programming background. RStudio has enabled me to apply different types of statistical and data mining algorithms to different types of data easily and obtain the results that are eay to understand, present, and interpret.

"Amazing platform for data analytics"

What do you like best?

RStudio is incredible. I love the fact that it is open source, and works seamlessly with R. There are so many packages developed by others that can be easily obtained from CRAN or Bioconductor, so performing analytics is very intuitive and user-friendly. All the functions also come with good documentation and plenty of examples to follow-along, which was tremendously helpful when I was starting out as a beginner user lats year.

What do you dislike?

I sometimes find that writing your own packages or programs to do computations is not as straightforward. For instance, I tried to write a function that would rank a set of products and perform a similarity calculation between the vendors. Writing new functions from scratch was a bit hard for me as I did not find very good documentation that was easy to follow. I have had to rely on other's packages, which has worked out well too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using RStudio to run predictive analytics, specifically I'm trying to predict sales for a given week based on predictors such as number of visits to our website, what links users click on, their past purchase history, etc. RStudio has very good functions to build regression and machine learning models for such work. I realized that the biggest benefit is that it is free of cost. I was previously using Stata for which I had to pay.

"User friendly interface for R"

What do you like best?

I recently started to work with R and statistical analysis for my PhD project. RStudio is basically R with buttons and more useful resources. The auto save sessions are amazing and you don't have to be worried about your computer shut down or anything that can happen somethings, you are not gonna lose your data. To install packages is super easy and there is a lot of them out there. The console is super user friendly and the script screen is pretty clear. Even for beginners like me, RStudio looks easy.

What do you dislike?

One thing I don't like about the RStudio is the lack of auto updating R feature. When a new R is released, you have to download and install it manually, RStudio does not recognize a new version of R. And you also have to copy and paste your packages from the old R to the new directory, RStudio cannot handle it yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have to run lot of data in R and you are a beginner or not a bioinformatics guy, use RStudio, the interface is good and user friendly, everything is pretty clear in the screen, you will know when something is wrong with your code and RStudio gives you some hint to make the code work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RStudio helped me to analyze my RNA-seq data in one week, and I never worked with this kind of data before. It looks clear and easy, just type and run your script, do it all over again and your work are done.

"Statistical Language Tool"

What do you like best?

The community associated with the tool and language is very strong. Also the extensive work and updation of packages make it very easy to use and apply functionalities. Caret and dplyr are very versatile packages. If one learns to use ggplot 2 package, they can even create interactive dashboards like one from tableau.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about the language but the constant and frequent updates in few packages makes one re-learn the concepts related to it again and again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is difficult to learn, but there is a lot of material available online to woke through it. I learned through data camp, ISLR and participated in online kagggle competitions. It takes time but once crossed the threshold its a cake walk then on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RStudio was mostly used for data wrangling. This data cleaning part took the maximum part of processing the whole data. Once the concepts were learned it was easy to use and modify the data for further work on it. Statistical knowledge coupled with the knowledge of this tool can work wonders. One can build regression models and do predictive analysis. There are many applications towards improving and understanding the data for the further applications.

"Great tool for R programming"

What do you like best?

I really like the user interface design. It is it very intuitive with different sections like code, console, file paths, libraries. Another good point is the easy way of searching and installing new libraries that make your work more simple and fast

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't know what to say. I think this tool doesn't have any cons. It is made for any kind of user for beginners and also advanced users and can be used in some many different fields

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy to use but in case you have some problems, you can check the official documentation or even non official. There are a lot of documentation on the Internet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast and efficient R programming. It is currently the best and more most famous framework for R development used for big data and business intelligent projects

"The only IDE to use with R!"

What do you like best?

I don't even know where to begin. Rstudio is highly customizable, allowing you to choose how to display your console, plots, workspace variables, etc within the IDE. The newer versions of Rstudio allow for version control with git as well, which is very advantageous for collaborative projects. Plotting is also easy, and you can easily scroll through your plot history to compare many plots. You can easily inspect your datasets and variables as well. Installation is very simple and takes a few moments. I use Rstudio with my PC and Mac, and I've never experienced problems with either. In addition to an IDE, you can also write latex and markdown documents integrated with R code and output. I love this feature, because I produce many reports in which I need to show R code and output. Also Rstudio is free!

What do you dislike?

Although Rstudio is an excellent IDE, that comes at a cost of overhead. Compiling large lateX documents, for example, takes much longer if you run them through Rstudio versus the command line.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Rstudio to a wide variety of people--from students to instructors, business professionals, and anyone who'd like to get some programming experience in a user friendly IDE. I especially recommend Rstudio to those who are on a budget, because Rstudio is free! I would also recommend it for analysts who wish to use version control on collaborative projects, because Rstudio integrates with github.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Rstudio extensively daily to analyze, process, and manipulate data. It is an invaluable resource. I would not be as productive or efficient without it. I really love that I can produce high quality reports with R code. This helps others understand my work and makes my research reproducible.

"R-studio can handle statistical packages pretty well"

What do you like best?

What I like the most about R-studio is the variety of packages that it covers. Most statisticians are well-versed with R so most of their academic papers end up being a package in R which makes it a very useful software for statistics. R-studio is easy to use and it is quite friendly. I also like the visualization packages such as ggplot2 which generates fancy figures.

What do you dislike?

I think R is very good for statistics but it's quite limiting for many other tasks such as data-wrangling, deep learning, and machine learning packages. If you are working in those areas I suggest using Python instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider making Machine Learning and Deep learning packages more user friendly and provide a good tutorial on that so that you can resemble something like Scikit-learn)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working with R-studio for a while now. I often run ANOVA models ore regressions. I also use it for mapping (ggmap) and visualization because I think the visualizations are great. Although, after the advent of Tableau, I barely use R-studio for visualization. Because of it being an open-source software, it is still a common software preferred by many companies including Mckinsey.

"IDE perfecto para el lenguaje R"

What do you like best?

I have been using this IDE to program in R for quite some time, about 3 years. The application is robust and works quickly, especially when executing commands through the console.

Visually is not the best I've seen but this can be solved by changing the theme in the IDE configuration, where we will find more than 20 styles available to choose from themes such as the sky theme or darker for programmers who prefer these types of colors for program.

One of the best features of this IDE in my opinion is its debugger since it allows a quick and easy way to locate the point where our program is failing, also showing valuable information about the error so that we can correct it.

What do you dislike?

I would like it to have different settings for the shortcut, because if you come to program in other programming languages or different IDE, you will find something lost because the keyboard shortcuts will not be the same, a different plugin or profile that would allow using the shortcut of Eclipse would be perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This application is currently the best one to program in R since the debugger that implements executes the R language natively. In addition, the IDE allows you to modify its interface and change the sources for the one that best suits your programming preferences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this IDE the programming speed is increased thanks to its auto completion since the suggestions it makes are very accurate, besides the templates that come with the files that are created are very useful for not writing the same code every time you create a new file.

"Best R Programming platform"

What do you like best?

I truly like the UI. It will be it exceptionally natural with various areas like code, support, document ways, libraries. Another great point is the easy method for looking and putting in new libraries that make your work progressively straightforward and quick. Rstudio is exceedingly adaptable, enabling you to pick how to show your support, plots, workspace factors, and so forth inside the IDE. The more up to date forms of Rstudio take into account rendition control with git too, which is worthwhile for collective tasks. Plotting is likewise simple, and you can without much of a stretch look through your plot history to think about numerous plots. You can without much of a stretch review your datasets and factors too. Establishment is exceptionally basic and takes a couple of minutes. I use Rstudio with my PC and Mac, and I've never experienced issues with either. Notwithstanding an IDE, you can likewise compose latex and markdown records coordinated with R code and yield.

What do you dislike?

It's expensive and accumulating vast lateX archives, for instance, takes any longer in the event that you run them through Rstudio versus the command tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would profoundly prescribe Rstudio to a wide assortment of individuals - from understudies to educators, business experts, and anybody who'd like to make some programme involvement in an easy to use IDE. I particularly prescribe Rstudio to the individuals who are on a financial plan, on the grounds that Rstudio is free! I would likewise prescribe it for experts who wish to utilize rendition control on community ventures, in light of the fact that Rstudio incorporates with github.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Rstudio widely every day to dissect, process, and control information. It is an important asset. I would not be as beneficial or productive without it. I truly love that I can create superb reports with R code. This helps other people comprehend my work and makes my examination reproducible.

"A complete game changer"

What do you like best?

RStudio has been a complete game changer for me at work. Not only does it provide a slick interface for utilizing the R programming language, it makes implementing new packages and combining multiple programming languages simple and efficient. The Help tab save a great deal of time that would otherwise be spent on Google. The Plots tab makes exporting plots quick and versatile. Personally, I could go on for a long time on how great this product is. Shout out to the Monokai theme; it makes coding a dream.

What do you dislike?

There are some issue with saving plots and their size and scale. I can program a plot to have a specific scale, but open it in the Plots tab differently and the saved file changes. Especially when I put multiple plots onto the same image there are scale issues. I have spent more time than I would like to admit adjusting scales.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out the documentation and Stack Overflow with questions. This GUI is highly powerful and worth the time to acclimate to. I would also recommend the theme "Monokai," which is a dark theme. It makes the coding softer on the eyes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I complete probably 85%-90% of my work with RStudio. We run off an IBM AS400 server and I constantly pull and manipulate data through an ODBC connection using SQL queries and then dump the data into Excel. Data wrangling that would take literal days in Excel take mere seconds once a program is written. We recently updated our accounting software and we had to verify that our data transferred correctly. The accountants would have had to check hundreds of thousands of lines of data manually over the course of days (in at least 3 different stages), but I was able to complete the whole process in a few hours (coding, formatting, and running scripts combined). Highly powerful.

"Why you should utilize Rstudio!""

What do you like best?

RStudio is unimaginable. I adore the way that it is open source, and it works splendidly with R. There are such a significant number of bundles created by others that can be effectively gotten from CRAN or Bioconductor, so performing examination is exceptionally instinctive and simple to utilize. Every one of the capacities additionally accompany great documentation and a ton of guides to track, which was immensely valuable when I was beginning as an amateur client lats year.

What do you dislike?

In some cases I find that composition your own bundles or projects to do computations isn't that basic. For instance, I attempted to compose a capacity that would group a lot of items and play out a closeness estimation between the suppliers. Composing new capacities without any preparation was somewhat troublesome for me, since I didn't discover great documentation that was anything but difficult to pursue. I have needed to depend on different bundles, which have additionally functioned admirably.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unquestionably prescribed - it's free for all, which is particularly an extraordinary advantage for the understudies. Use it more in classes to open understudies to an assortment of perception, displaying, and information mining undertakings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm utilizing RStudio to run prescient investigation, explicitly I'm endeavoring to foresee deals for a given week dependent on indicators, for example, the quantity of visits to our site, the connections that clients click on, their buy history, and so forth. RStudio has extremely great capacities to construct relapse models and machine learning for this sort of work. I understood that the greatest advantage is that it's free. I utilized Stata previously, so I needed to pay.

There are such a significant number of bundles created by others that can be effectively acquired from CRAN or Bioconductor, so performing examination is instinctive and client friendly,I truly like the UI plan. It will be it instinctive with various areas like code, support, document ways, libraries. Another great point is the easy method for looking and putting in new libraries that make your work increasingly straightforward and quick

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't realize what to state. I figure this apparatus doesn't have any cons. It is made for any sort of client for apprentices and furthermore propelled clients and can be utilized in some a wide range of fields

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to utilize yet in the event that you have a few issues, you can check the official documentation or even non official. There are a great deal of documentation on the Internet.If you need to run parcel of information in R and you are a learner or not a bioinformatics fellow, use RStudio, the interface is great and easy to understand, everything is really clear in the screen, you will realize when something isn't right with your code and RStudio gives you some insight to make the code work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RStudio was for the most part utilized for information wrangling. This information cleaning part took the most extreme piece of preparing the entire information. When the ideas were found out it was anything but difficult to utilize and alter the information for further work on it. Measurable information combined with the learning of this apparatus can do something amazing. One can construct relapse models and do prescient analysis.Fast and productive R programming. It is at present the best and all the more most acclaimed system for R improvement utilized for huge information and business keen activities

"Perfect IDE for programming and performing data analysis"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that, unlike other consoles, Rstudio offers everything in a consolidated way. I no longer have to fidget around different tabs to find my variable environments. I have all of it available. Also, it allows you to check your data frames and filter it in a GUI format, so you no longer have to write custom codes if you just want to look at a few values.

What do you dislike?

Whenever a plot is being made, the IDE shows you a version of the plot. However, the dimensions of the plot are not correct. So you see an incorrect version of the plot on R studio unless you zoom completely or save it somewhere else and then view it using a different app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

R Studio is an IDE which allows you to perform data analytics. It is a perfect console that lets you view your results as soon as the code is written. One of the business problems I am solving using R studio is to cluster similar products together. Fortunately, R provides you with a lot of in-built packages for data analysis. Moreover, there are multiple advanced packages like CARET available for complex machine learning algorithms.

"A great software for both R beginners and complex users"

What do you like best?

R studio is easy to navigate and use for analysis even with little to no experience with R programming. It allows you to easily manage and visualize all the objects in your environment, whether you are performing simple analysis and graphing or if you are running complex models or even writing your own R packages.

What do you dislike?

It could use a few more thorough tutorials that shows you exactly the basics of working through a project in Rstudio, where all the features are located, etc. But many tutorials exist online that can serve the same purpose if need be

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using R studio to manage and edit different data structures, perform computational statistical analysis and visualize the results of these analyses

"RStudio Makes Working with R Significantly More Efficient"

What do you like best?

Separating the console and clean script allows the user to have a working script with which the problem solve and perfect, as well as a clean, final script. RStudio brings packages to your fingertips and makes installing them a breeze. The ability to also view one's dataset while working is also invaluable to the user. Generally, the RStudio interface is the same, easy to use interface as R so if you're familiar with one, it should be easy to learn the other.

What do you dislike?

In order to save packages to your user library, you must download and save them. It would be nice if the system library included more widely used pre-downloaded packages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

RStudio is a great resource as it is open source software and constantly improving and evolving. As a free software, it can be essential for any business which analyzes data, spatial or not.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in geospatial analysis. R is a great tool because you can use it for geospatial statistics. RStudio simply makes working in R ten times easier by creating a clean script as well as a separate working space. RStudio also allows me to save and install packages with a click instead of having to download them each time I use the program.

"Pros & Cons of RStudio"

What do you like best?

RStudio is one of the best tools for coding and debugging in R. The GUI is user friendly. It allows the user to view multiple windows together like editor, console, plots and environment variables. This helps to get work done faster. It also has many visualization packages, making it a good visualization tool as well. Box plots, scatter plots, heatmaps, scatter plot matrix, histogram, bar plot etc are all available for visualization of data. It is a great platform for statistical and data analysis.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the visualizations do not show the complete data. For example if you run neural networks with large number of hidden nodes, RStudio fails to display half the nodes and their bias values. Also, heatmaps of variable with a large name; do not display the entire variable name in the plot.

There are few packages that take too long to load and do not allow other packages to be downloaded simultaneously. This also affects execution of code at times

Recommendations to others considering the product

RStudio is an easy to use application for statistical analysis and data visualization using R programming. A lot of analysis can be done using this tool: from cleaning you data set, data reduction, sampling and oversampling, to training different models and testing the results, so definitely try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used RStudio for analyzing data sets with statistics and visualization. Then, for modelling my data with various classification and predictive methods and selecting the best based on performance. It helps develop business solutions for the data set being examined.

"R Studio"

What do you like best?

The interface is nice and the modeling features are nice. I like R, I like Rstudio, better than SAS and better than a lot of other software. I like R. This sort of thing is quite used for research purposes and whatnot but it could be used for other things as well. Like for education, finance, and a lot of other sectors

What do you dislike?

Interface could be more customized and faster. R could be better, could be better documented, could do with more python like features, get more stuff, etc. Could improve on speed and other aspects as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Modeling and statistical analysis, Can't talk about specifics due to NDA, but mostly stats and analysis of data and whatnot. It is quite nice actually. Very revolutionary and will bring lots of benefits to the world. This is what research is really about. Funding is an issue, but it wouldn't be an issue if everyone knew what we were doing. The world will be a better place with our research and it would really be out there. Space, it will be reachable with the amount of work we do with gravity. That's the biggest problem. Gravity. If we solve gravity, we can get to space and we can get to other planets, like what Elon musk wants to do. But the government doesn't like having people out there without their control so they restrict our funding. That is not good.

"Makes large data sets simple to interpret!"

What do you like best?

The software is simple to learn, and there are many guides available as needed. I also like how simple it is to get help with using different packages within the program. I also like the availability of RMarkdown that can be used to turn codes into html.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I struggle with adding commas and keeping my symbols/punctuation straight. With Stata, punctuation and symbols aren't as necessary when inputting the commands.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely make sure to use the resources that are all over the internet for help with RStudio. Almost anything you could possibly need help on is out there, and will make your life a lot easier! I also think it's good to have a good background in another stats program first because then the manipulations that you will need to do will make a lot more sense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to quickly and easily find the data results and answers that I am looking for when my data sets have upwards of 200,000 observations. This is very useful and saves time.

"Review de RStudio"

What do you like best?

Rstudio está diseñado para ofrecer un entorno de desarrollo integrado. RStudio es la razón por la que elegí la programación en R. Es fácil de usar y el diseño es ideal. También me gusta que sea fácil actualizar paquetes. Lo más sobresaliente es que no solo ofrece la finalización automática del código, sino también la finalización automática de la ruta del archivo. Aunque aprender a programar en R sea algo complejos al principio, con RStudio es más fácil y merece la pena.

What do you dislike?

En general, no tengo quejas sobre RStudio. Lo único que puedo mencionar es que tarda un poco en cargar el entorno. Toma tiempo procesar conjuntos de datos grandes y que podrían implementar el uso de múltiples procesadores. Aún así, sigue siendo una de las mejores interfaces para usar R.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ten paciencia con el lenguaje R. Es complejo y lleva su tiempo aprenderlo pero una vez que lo dominas no hay nada mejor y RStudio te da todas las las facilidades posibles para conseguirlo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizo RStudio para análisis estadísticos complejos como modelos de ecuación estructural, análisis bayesianos y modelos jerárquicos. Fundamentalmente lo utilizo para la investigación.

"Amazing data analysis tool"

What do you like best?

Visualization is the best option provided for large data sets. The help function for all the code which we required is really nice. The packages are easy to understand. The interface is quite simple and straightforward.It is easy to install. There are proper documentation available to understand each and every thins. The scrips i made for my project were easy to use by everyone. It is open source, easy not only for employees but also for students who are in their learning phase can easily use R for their academic purpose.For R users, there is active group which can help an user to understand things very easily. This group helped me in providing me a lot in understanding the errors.

What do you dislike?

Nothing much. It is quite easy to access but one need to know about the right libraries to be installed. I didn't dislike anything about this product as particular.Some memory management issue i have faced sometimes. It can quickly absorb all the memory and space available. Other than that i never faced any issue with R.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's an amazing tool for data analysis. The data cleaning part done on R helped me a lot in reducing my daily hours of cleaning the data. The scripts made on R studio is really easy and helpful.One is able to understand the concept and functions easily with help feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Large data sets for providing analysis to senior leadership. The visualization helped me in providing good result to leadership. The data cleaning scrips reduce the man hours for data scientists and for me as well.

"Awesome experience with RStudio"

What do you like best?

The UI Interface, the ease of programming, and the auto-complete features of this IDE are mind-blowing.

What do you dislike?

I just don't like the plots and charts space a little bit, except for that everything is pretty good and perfect!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hands-down the most amazing IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for R and a few other languages!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was building Machine Learning models and predictive analytics frameworks with RStudio. I have also developed a real-time web application in RStudio via ShinyApps. We were solving the problem of lead categorization to increase the efficiency of the sales representatives and help them sell well.

"Easy, intuitive IDE for R programming"

What do you like best?

RStudio's interface is clean, minimalist, and makes writing code easy. Being able to view plots/files, variables, workspace, and command line all at once is helpful. Highlighted text (depending on values, variables, functions etc.) makes singling out comments, files, and numbers easy; this feature is expanded when working in R Markdown and is visually simple. The ability to preview and knit R Markdown documents is useful.

What do you dislike?

RStudio tends to slow down considerably when editing an R Markdown or R Notebook file; I find myself having to write in a basic R script document then transfer over to Markdown once finished. Some useful features are somewhat hidden (ie, "Set Working Directory" is a tiny option in a small menu; it would be nice if this were more notable). The export image feature isn't great, and I usually use an outside utility to preserve image fidelity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

RStudio helps our data analysis move quickly. Benefits include increased efficiency and a lower learning curve for writing R code.

"R studio for high throughput data analysis of protein microarrays"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use, the layout of the studio that allows you to visualize your data in both the graphical form and spreadsheet in different panels which can also be adjusted and customized. Also it's great to have the terminal and scripts in the same window separated by different panels it makes it easy to modify the script and then execute the modifications. Additionally for graphical representation I really liked that you can add packages such as pretty heatmaps to use presets that make data visualization look more professional.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any negatives, it's a great platform to use R in a very efficient way.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Amazing platform that makes the generation of graphical representations easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use RStudio for the generation of graphical representation of microarray highthrougput data in science.

"R Studio for Sports Analytics"

What do you like best?

It's fairly easy to import data into R Studio. It is helpful to be able to write multiple scripts simultaneously in the Editor. The console displays the results of the script outcome and/or displays any errors.

What do you dislike?

The Console does not save the output. It would be helpful if the console saved the output in different sections/windows for each corresponding script.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend R Studio to others, but it is import to learning the programming language first. It is also very important to learn how to clean up the data first through the appropriate script.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I analyzed MLB sport related data. There were two datasets imported into R Studio, one for players and one for teams. I cleaned up the data. Dataframes were then created to merge and store the data. By creating the data frames and running the scripts, the sports stats became easier to analyze.

"RStudio - a powerful tool for data wrangling and package creating in R"

What do you like best?

Rstudio has a great interface: data browsing is the best I have seen in any IDE, including MATLAB. It has integration with git. As a allows for creating proper packages, ready with documentation and and all whistles and bells. The same time it is sample and intuitive, making it beginner-friendly.

What do you dislike?

It's problems is really a continuation of this IDE advantages: e.g. interface is minimal and simple, but it would be nice to create multiple separate windows for browsing data or have R-console detached.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is free and frankly the only option for R IDE

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Created and submitted two Bioconductor packages. Explored certain problems in random matrix theory.

"Rstudio for your review"

What do you like best?

RStudio makes work easier with When entering RStudio we see the screen divided into four windows, that multiplatform R, works on Mac, Windows, and Numbers UNIX Numbers. This means that you can work with your data, figures, analysis and more importantly using your instructions, R is free software, there is a large community of volunteers working to improve it, which allows it to be molded and addressed to specific issues. Creating programs and packages that work in the environment R. Programs such as R-studio, Java GUI for R, R-commander, RKWard, among others, and with more than 6000 packages indexed in CRAN, Biocoductor, GitHub and R-Forge

What do you dislike?

R has a vast documentation of help, description of packages and functions, it is difficult to find specific information at any given time, R is an online programming language of command, which does not involve the use of menus like other statistical programs, this makes many people who are not familiar with programming, it is very difficult to migrate to R. But this is more than a disadvantage, because programming will better understand the basis of statistics and data analysis, compared to other people who do not use R.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First, because it is a language with a complex learning curve, but very robust and effective for the handling of statistical data, for developers specialized in these languages, it can be simple. In addition, R is a programming language that is constantly evolving and that has extensive documentation, ease in the preparation of data, with this technique is very simple, largely because it automates many processes by programming sequences of commands, R works with any type of file, R is a language that allows the implementation of additional packages that give a huge data management capacity, It is open source and free.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically, I can simplify the steps when updating a database, reduce working time, once it is scheduled, as a statistical platform, it offers me all the techniques of data analysis. In addition to programming new methods and routines in an easy and robust way, I can do any database immediately, I can perform all the data analysis and even read files of different formats.

"An easy-to-use and comprehensive IDE with tons of functionality "

What do you like best?

The ability to load data into the workspace interactively and being able to view the data instantaneously, without having to export it first. This is a brilliant feature that more IDEs should include. I also enjoy being able to snippets of code at a time, not the entire file.

What do you dislike?

I wish it had a built-in terminal along with the R environment, like with PyCharm. This way one can run 2 codes at once, or be running one code while playing around with another at the same time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The data visualization capabilities are good, but if you plan to use RStudio solely for this purpose, exporting plots can get a little tedious and viewing the plots interactively can be error-prone, in my experience. Python is more powerful for visualization but less convenient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything from principal component analysis for hugely multivariate databases, to data visualization (e.g. plotting temperature gradient time series' over the entire US), to simple data analysis and file I/O.

"Free, but open source (so beware)"

What do you like best?

I like that RStudio (a user interface for R) is free & allows for the ability to download & install packages in the console itself. You can even connect to Google Visualization Charts, which open up more possibilities with data visualization.

What do you dislike?

I find that it isn't 100% user friendly - I can never remember where to save exactly what I would like (my R script in the editor or the entire disc image), & to this day, I still forget how to set my working directory permanently. I also dislike that due to being open source, every package is different in coding (even if written by the same source). This makes similar functions tricky to do vs in SAS where you just change which proc function, etc you are using. I find that it can be a bit clunky, but overall, still decent for being free & open source.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to really research packages to ensure writing code correctly as they can vary so much!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's great to have a free option as a resource for working with large datasets. SAS can be pricey, but since R & RStudio are free, it is a great substitute. It allows to anyone with any software budget access their data & be able to conduct many different levels of analysis. I don't personally utilize RStudio every day, as I am more primarily a SQL & SAS user, but it is very handy to have RStudio around for when I need it.

"User review for RStudio"

What do you like best?

The R notebook function is very handy and helps convey ideas in a clear and concise fashion.

Intellisense of Rstudio are pretty robust.

What do you dislike?

The knitting process of the R markdown notebook can be faster.

Some hotkeys combination could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rstudio is a great IDE if you're working with the R language or if you want to work with genetic data in general.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work with healthcare data. RStudio makes it easy to handle genetic data with a lot of community support in the forms of packages and tutorials all integrated in one environment.

"Is RStudio up to face competition? hmmm.. maybe not."

What do you like best?

I love the way it has integrated code completion, help manuals for any package and also the possibility to integrate custom tools to its addins. IT also allows us to view what's loaded in the global environment and even see the structure of objects.

What do you dislike?

Not being able to run parallel processes within the editor. It all must be handled by R and not even all the operations can be scaled. There should be more addins available. Code formatting is inconsistent and makes your code unreadable at some point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other tools out there that might be easier to use for neofites. But I strongly recommend this tool for anybody wanting to learning predictive analytics or datascience. That being said, I would nto recommend it for data exploration since Excel or SAP Lumira is more powerfull than this. Trifacta is also another good tool to explore your data. But when it comes to modeling, math enthousiasts will love RStudio.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am EAM analyst and I need to perform regression testing and analysis. I also need to build models for our reliability group.

"Open source, stable GUI for R with enterprise licensing as option"

What do you like best?

- Easy to navigate

- Fantastic to install/uninstall packages

- Great sense of customisation

- Stable with rare crash

- Fast in-memory engine

- Open source

- Free license with option to go pro

What do you dislike?

- Slow when sample size is high

- Needs a bit of redesign to get closer to something like Zeppelin or Jupyter. This IDE style is a bit of old school.

- It does not have cool visualisation solution. Everything must be coded.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This IDE is great to start with R. However, it keeps data in memory so its performance is highly dependent of the volume of RAM you have on your machine. It can easily crash when data is large.

This is dedicated to R as name suggests with lots of features. If you are in enterprise environment, you can even deploy your model on RStudio Server where you can schedule your task on a certain plan. Surly you have to pay for enterprise a very reasonable fee (I think it is $1000).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

R code development, description analysis, data cleansing, feature engineering, modelling

"Easy to follow, great for beginners in R and command line"

What do you like best?

I like that it has a nice GUI. When an image is generated, it pops up in the corner and the user has the option to zoom in and can save it from the GUI rather than typing into a command line. You can see what it looks like before you save. You can also see characters and strings you have created in the upper right corner of the GUI, so keeping track of what you've created in R is much easier. The drop down menus for installing packages from both CRAN and from source are also really nice!

What do you dislike?

It can be a little clunky sometimes, though it could be my computer making it that way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data analysis is much easier, and due to the graphical nature of RStudio, it's easier to see what I've done as far as creating objects and strings, and also images.
