Good Graphical User Interfaces for R


R is widely regarded (and quite rightly) as an excellent tool for statistics, data analysis, and machine learning. Many statisticians use R with the command line. However, the command line can be quite daunting to a beginner of R. Fortunately, there are many excellent frontends for R which make R easier to use.

To provide an insight into the quality of software available for Linux, I have highlighted below the 6 best open source frontends for R. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone who wants to quickly get to grips with this programming language and environment. I consider RStudio and StatET for R to be the finest; but that’s my personal preference.
