Over the past year we’ve been hard at work on creating R interfaces to TensorFlow, an open-source machine learning framework from Google. We are excited about TensorFlow for many reasons, not the least of which is its state-of-the-art infrastructure for deep learning applications. In the 2 years since it was initially open-sourced by Google, TensorFlow has rapidly become the framework of choice for both machine learning practitioners and researchers. On Saturday, we formally announced our work on TensorFlow during J. Read more →

We are excited to share that sparklyr 0.7 is now available on CRAN! Sparklyr provides an R interface to Apache Spark. It supports dplyr syntax for working with Spark DataFrames and exposes the full range of machine learning algorithms available in Spark. You can also learn more about Apache Spark and sparklyr in spark.rstudio.com and our new webinar series on Apache Spark. Features in this release: Adds support for ML Pipelines which provide a uniform set of high-level APIs to help create, tune, and deploy machine learning pipelines at scale. Read more →

pool package on CRAN

2017-11-17 Bárbara Borges
The pool package makes it easier for Shiny developers to connect to databases. Up until now, there wasn’t a clearly good way to do this. As a Shiny app author, if you connect to a database globally (outside of the server function), your connection won’t be robust because all sessions would share that connection (which could leave most users hanging when one of them is using it, or even all of them if the connection breaks).

Today I’m excited to announce a new R package, blogdown, to help you create general-purpose (static) websites with R Markdown. The first version of blogdown is available on CRAN now, and you can install it with: install.packages("blogdown") The source package is hosted on Github in the repository rstudio/blogdown. Since blogdown is a new package, you may install and test the development version using devtools::install_github("rstudio/blogdown") if you run into problems with the CRAN version. Read more →

We are excited to announce that the keras package is now available on CRAN. The package provides an R interface to Keras, a high-level neural networks API developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. Keras has the following key features: Allows the same code to run on CPU or on GPU, seamlessly. User-friendly API which makes it easy to quickly prototype deep learning models. Built-in support for convolutional networks (for computer vision), recurrent networks (for sequence processing), and any combination of both. Read more →

Master the tidyverse

2017-08-16 Roger Oberg
If you’ve read the book “R for Data Science” or plan to, now you can dive deeper with co-author and RStudio Master Instructor Garrett Grolemund, winner of the Excellence in CE Award at JSM 2017! This two day workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what is now called the Tidyverse, a core set of R packages that are essential to Data Science. You will visualize, transform, and model data in R and work with date-times, character strings, and untidy data formats. Read more →

Shiny 1.0.4 is now available on CRAN. To install it, run: install.packages("shiny") For most Shiny users, the most exciting news is that file inputs now support dragging and dropping: It is now possible to add and remove tabs from a tabPanel, with the new functions insertTab(), appendTab(), prependTab(), and removeTab(). It is also possible to hide and show tabs with hideTab() and showTab(). Shiny also has a new a function, onStop(), which registers a callback function that will execute when the application exits.

sparklyr 0.6

2017-07-31 Javier Luraschi
We’re excited to announce a new release of the sparklyr package, available in CRAN today! sparklyr 0.6 introduces new features to: Distribute R computations using spark_apply() to execute arbitrary R code across your Spark cluster. You can now use all of your favorite R packages and functions in a distributed context. Connect to External Data Sources using spark_read_source(), spark_write_source(), spark_read_jdbc() and spark_write_jdbc(). Use the Latest Frameworks including dplyr 0.7, DBI 0. Read more →

haven 1.1.0

2017-07-13 Hadley Wickham
I’m pleased to announce the release of haven 1.1.0. Haven is designed to faciliate the transfer of data between R and SAS, SPSS, and Stata. It makes it easy to read SAS, SPSS, and Stata file formats in to R data frames, and makes it easy to save your R data frames in to SPSS and Stata if you need to collaborate with others using closed source statistical software. Install the latest version by running: Read more →
