Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) SciViews was one of the first GUI available for R (Grosjean 2003), but it runs only under Windows. Still on Windows only, Tinn-R (http://www.sciviews.org/Tinn-R) has a certain success as simple, but efficient and R- aware, code editor. The new SciViews-K(http://www.sciviews.org/SciViews-K), combined with Komodo Edit merges together the main features of the old SciViews and Tinn-R, and adds some more like unit programming (live unit tests reports). SciViews-K is a Mozilla extension for the Open Source code editor Komodo Edit (http://www.activestate.com/ komodo_edit) that provides interaction between the editor and R through sockets. Komodo Edit is build on top of Mozilla and runs on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and a couple of other platforms. So far, 90% of the features of both the old SciViews (object explorer, GUI similar to R Commander, Views), and of Tinn-R (code syntax highlighting, code tips, electronic R reference card, exhaustive set of functions to interact with R from the code editor) are reimplemented in SciViews-K. The plugin is still in beta stage, but version 1 will be released around October 2009.
