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.

  • 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 called SageMathCloud) looks quite promising. I have recommended it to at least one person previously, and they seemed to be quite happy with it. Bayond 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.

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

Also, R-Fiddle is an option.

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

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.

Try out AirXcell : AirXcell calculation software. See documentation Use AirXCell as an r Console
