First Class R Support in Binder / Binderhub – Shiny Apps As Well as R-Kernels and RStudio

Share Tweet

I notice from the binder-examples/r repo that Binderhub now appears to offer all sorts of R goodness out of the can, if you specify a particular R build.

From the same repo root, you can get:

  • Jupyter notebook+R: http://beta.mybinder.org/v2/gh/binder-examples/r/master?filepath=index.ipynb
  • RStudio: http://beta.mybinder.org/v2/gh/binder-examples/r/master?urlpath=rstudio
  • A Shiny app: http://beta.mybinder.org/v2/gh/binder-examples/r/master?urlpath=shiny/bus-dashboard/

And from previously, here’s a workaround for displaying R/HTMLwidgets in a Jupyter notebook.

OpenRefine is also available from a simple URL – https://mybinder.org/v2/gh/betatim/openrefineder/master?urlpath=openrefine – courtesy of betatim/openrefineder:

Perhaps it’s time for me to try to get my head round what the Jupyter notebook proxy handlers are doing…

PS see also Scripted Forms for a simple markdown script way of building interactive Jupyter widget powered UIs.
