  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Nvim-R

    Vim plugin to work with R

    If you want to go in a very different direction, you can try vim (or neovim) with nvim-r. For a variety of reasons, that’s what I tend to use.

  • jupyterlab-lsp

    Coding assistance for JupyterLab (code navigation + hover suggestions + linters + autocompletion + rename) using Language Server Protocol

    JupyterLab is optimised for handling R, Python and Julia. Code intelligence-wise it requires installing jupyterlab-lsp to get all the best features.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • languageserver

    An implementation of the Language Server Protocol for R

    The truth is that most editors will use R language server underneath ( ) so it's more what layout you prefer than what functionalities an editor has to offer.

  • dotfiles

    Dotfiles focused on Ubuntu, data science, and Emacs (by wmay)

    You can see my .emacs here. It's not the most organized config but it may be useful
