@JacquelynGill I would not recommend using R’s built in editor.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill or go with a text editor like Text Wrangler (syntax highlighting etc) or if you’re hardcore, emacs with keyboard bindings.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to JacquelynGill

@JacquelynGill R Commander is really dated at this point. Use Rstudio (nice IDE with great features not found elsewhere).

via Twitter for Mac in reply to JacquelynGill

@recology_ @ethanwhite or nothing wouldn’t do all that much to help the cause.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to sckottie

@recology_ @ethanwhite Sure but isn’t that like saying you’re with us or against us? Given current mindset of most sci, asking them to all
