R coming to Visual Studio

You might have missed one significant bit of news tucked into yesterday's Microsoft R announcement: R is coming to Visual Studio:


R Tools for Visual Studio (RTVS) follows the model of Python Tools for Visual Studio: it's an open-source plug-in to Visual Studio that makes it a complete IDE for R, with syntax-aware editing, a command-line REPL, and interactive debugging. (Like PTVS, there will be a GitHub repo for RTVS when it's ready for release.)

Of course, RStudio already has excellent capabilities for developing R code, and RTVS isn't available — yet. But if you already develop in Visual Studio, or want to develop R code alongside C++, JavaScript, Python or any language supported by Visual Studio, send an email to [email protected] to sign up for early access to RTVS.
