Can’t I just use R?


Certainly, but the RStudio IDE makes the R language easier to use. Work is streamlined and integrated into a single environment.

Source, Console, Workspace, and Plots are all in one place. Data management and analysis tools are at your fingertips. Package installation, graphic output, final reports, and help are all simplified for you.

RStudio products offer powerful coding and presentation tools that enhance your productivity. You can navigate rapidly between projects and manage multiple work contexts with ease. Our products have integrated support for Git and Subversion, and support authoring many different types of static and interactive output with R Markdown, Interactive Documents, and Shiny, that make it easier to share your work and collaborate with others.
