As recently as a couple of years ago, finding information about R in the Web was hard. Other than the canonical content and mailing list archives at the official R project site, www.r-project.org, there wasn’t too much else dedicated to R on the web — and what was there was hard to find on Google without the help of sites like Rseek.org

Fast-forward to today, and all that’s changed. If you search for R on Google, you’ll actually find content related to the R project on the first page. Dozens of blogs now cover R regularly, as the RSS feed of r-bloggers.com demonstrates. StackOverflow.com has over 1500 questions related to R. Crantastic.org lists more than 2500 user-contributed packages for R. On top of that, there are thousands of personal websites with useful tips, tricks and other useful suggestions for R.

Revolution Analytics created Inside-R.org for the R community to highlight these useful resources for R from around the Web, and make them accessible and searchable from a single site. From today, you’ll be able to find blog posts about R, information about R packages from crantastic.org, questions about R from StackOverflow, and the help pages for all R functions in the latest R distribution, all accessible from a comprehensive search. You can even contribute your own tips and tricks for other R users.

I’ll be blogging about the new features of Inside-R.org over the next couple of days, and you can read an overview in today’s press release. Insider-R.org is for you, the R users, so check it out and let us know what you think.
