I heard there is a new R extension coming up, which is easier to add in than the previous one. Could someone throw a instruction or a link ?
Thank you.

    Hi,

    you can install it via the marketplace inside RapidMiner Studio (admittedly it's a bit of a pain to find at the moment, we're working on fixing that) or you can install it right from here: https://marketplace.rapidminer.com/UpdateServer/faces/product_details.xhtml?productId=rmx_r_scripting

    It's basically just install the extension and add the new "Execute R" operator in your process. It will then try to automatically determine where you have installed R and the required packages. If it does not succeed, it will let you know and allow you to specify the path to R manually. You might end up having to install one or two packages for R by hand, but that's about it in terms of preparation required :)

    Regards,

    Hi,

    that is the intended behavior :)
    Everything you want to do via R, you can do via the new "Execute R" operator. You can pass data to it and retrieve as results in a much more powerful way than the old R extension could.
    Due to the completely changed way how Studio communicates with R, the R console is no longer accessible from within Studio. If you want to use it, you can configure R like you would without Studio by accessing R via your OS console directly.

    Regards,
    Marco
