R Step-by-Step with Jupyter
Suppose you have an R script that you would like to debug, or step through line by line collaboratively with others.
You can do this using a Jupyter notebook and CoCalc’s built-in collaboration. Start by using the jupytext command to convert a script to blocks of code in cells in a notebook.
If your R script is
rscript.R, then do the following:
rscript.Rto a CoCalc project.
Open a terminal and run the commands:
jupytext rscript.r --to ipynb open rscript.ipynb
In the Jupyter notebook, select the “R (system-wide)” kernel. You will see the script separated into multiple cells in the notebook.
You can then step through the script by running one cell in the notebook at a time.
