I am looking for an online console for the language R. Like I write the code and the server should execute and provide me with the output.

Similar to the website Datacamp.

  • $\begingroup$ I am also having this issue. Most of the links above require signing up and that is not something I want to do haha. I have been using rdrr.io/snippets which works generally though I was trying to see if there is something that will let me do a qplot for free online (again without a signup). Just an fyi. $\endgroup$ – Datvi Feb 25 at 14:59

  • R On Cloud provides a browser-embedded R-console.

  • Jupyter.org evolved from the IPython Project (the language-agnostic parts of IPython); supports Python 3, Julia, R, Haskell, Ruby, etc.

While I have only had a brief look at it, I think CoCalc (formerly SageMathCloud) looks quite promising. I have recommended it to at least one person previously, and they seemed to be quite happy with it. Beyond R support, you also get access to Python, SAGE (as the name indicates), and a few other things.

EDIT: Make sure to check the documentation on how to get an R (as opposed to a Python) session in a worksheet.

  • $\begingroup$ In a Sage Worksheet (".sagews"), just enter %default_mode r and evaluate the cell. Then you talk to R directly. $\endgroup$ – Harald Schilly Apr 25 '15 at 20:41

    $\begingroup$ In SageMathCloud at cloud.sagemath.com, you can also start a Jupyter Notebook and select "change kernel > R". $\endgroup$ – Samuel Lelièvre Feb 25 '16 at 20:55

Yes. I believe this is what you are looking for.

You can easily have an RStudio server installed in Digital Ocean using this package: https://github.com/sckott/analogsea

RStudio Server is definately one of the options, meant exactly for this. I've thought about using it with a cloud virtual machine, but haven't had the need yet. But when I (probably) need to prepare an intro data analysis class for the fall semester, then Rstudio Server is the first option I'll be trying out.

RStudio Cloud is the best I've used.

It offers the total R-Studio experience online. Most other sandboxes from this list either didn't work, were permanently closed, or required monthly fees.

RStudio Cloud is free, but does require a login, but you can sign in with your Google account, and it saves your progress (History and such) so you can access it from any computer.

Here's a screenshot from my first project, you can see it's the same as the R-Studio you can download. I haven't tried to hit it with anything heavy yet, but I assume it's probably not as nimble as a local instance - and most likely depends on how many people are using it at the same time. enter image description here

I am using this one, so far so good.
Online terminals: http://www.tutorialspoint.com/codingground.htm

Also, R-Fiddle is an option.

https://www.codeschool.com/ is very similar to https://www.datacamp.com/ when I tried it I fell in love with R and then found datacamp. www.codecademy.com is also console-based but R is not yet available.

Azure Notebooks should allow you to use multiple languages (R included). Unfortunately they are free only up to some (limited) amount of RAM. Still better than nothing.
