Whether you want to do, share, teach, or learn data science, RStudio Cloud is a cloud-based solution that allows you to do so online. The RStudio Cloud team has rolled out new features and improvements since our last post in September 2021. So what’s new?
If you want to use RStudio Cloud to teach, but are not in a position to cover costs for your students, you can now choose to have each student pay for their course access. See the Cloud Instructor page for more details on the option, but here are the basics:
See the Teaching with Cloud section of the Guide for details on all the available Instructor plan options.
You can now change a project’s settings directly from any projects listing. Edit the project’s name or description, or change who can access it - without opening the project.
For more info on project settings, see the Project Settings section of the Guide.
We recently integrated RStudio Cloud with RStudio Public Package Manager. Package Manager provides pre-built binaries for all packages on CRAN. As a result, you will see much faster package installs. You can learn more about RStudio Package Manager on our website.
We released several UI improvements, as follows:
More Obvious Trash Access: The trash for a space is now accessible via the Project Lists Navigator mentioned above (rather than via an icon in the header).
Better Navigation on Smaller Screens: On smaller screens, the different areas in your current context are accessible via a drop-down menu in the header (rather than discreetly tucked away in the main navigation sidebar or user panel).
Cloud Premium and Instructor plans now allow you to allocate up to 16GB RAM per project, double the previous limit of 8GB.
Visit the Project Resources section of the Guide to learn how to adjust the RAM and other resources allocated to a project.
We are excited to provide you with more capabilities so that you can jump right into your data science work. For more information and resources, please visit:
