Today Noam Ross’ tweet about his experience with the new R Notebooks from RStudio got me excited.
Can not find a GIF to properly convey the joy + wreckage of me messing around with the internals of the new #rstats notebook stuff.

Couple that with the release of JJ Allaire’s video at Open Data Science conference and I was eager to find it. In case you’re eager to trial it too, follow the steps below.
1.) Download latest RStudio daily for RStudio IDE and update:
2.) Download latest Rmarkdown package:
3.) Set your Options: Tools > Global Options > Rmarkdown > Enable R Notebook > Apply
4.) Open a new Rmarkdown file as usual
5.) Set the YAML output options from
output: html_document to
output: html_notebook: default
Don’t forget that with the new daily build of RStudio you can pull the Rmd file out of the RStudio IDE and edit it in a separate pane. Simply grab the document tab and pull it away, as you would tabs in your browser or Sublime.
