RStudio in Binder using a Dockerfile


NOTE: RStudio/R support is now supported natively in Binder. See the R example repository for how to create an RStudio session using runtime.txt.

This is a proof-of-concept to deploy a Binder that exposes the RStudio UI instead of a Jupyter Notebook. It also installs several packages from the tidyverse, and includes a demo script to show off functionality.

To start your RStudio session, click on "new" in the top right, and at the bottom will be RStudio Session. Click that and your RStudio session will begin momentarily!

See instructions.ipynb for more details.
