Empowering a data team with RStudio addins - Hao Zhu
RStudio addins provide a mechanism to extend RStudio in various ways. Addins can interact with the RStudio IDE through RStudio API. It can also provide users a graphical interface with the power of Shiny. In practice, we found it very useful for enhancing or streamlining interaction with data and computing infrastructure. In this talk, we will demonstrate how our team develops and uses RStudio addins to empower our work. You will see some internal tools created to help us manage database connections, and an addin which helps us access external cloud computing resources. We will also show an example of using the addins in rcrossref and citr to download and manage citation and literature databases during rmarkdown document development.
