R online with R-Fiddle

R-Fiddle is a programming environment for R available online. It allows us to encode and to run a program written in R.

Although R is free and there are also good free programming environments for R (e.g. R-Studio desktop, Tinn-R), this type of tool has several interests. It is suitable for mobile users who frequently change machine. If we have an Internet connection, we can work on a project without having to worry about the R installation on PCs. Collaborative work is another context in which this tool can be particularly advantageous. It allows us to avoid the transfer of files and the management of versions. Last, the solution allows us to work on a lightweight front-end, a laptop for example, and export the calculations on a powerful remote server (in the cloud as we would say today).

In this tutorial, we will briefly review the features of R-Fiddle.
