Overall Satisfaction with RStudio

RStudio supports the development of internal business intelligence tools and reproducible reporting within our firm. It is used by two members of our Investment Team. It helps us efficiently produce and maintain numerous coding projects that support all of the investment decisions that we make. RStudio has been integral to our firm developing tools that typically only exist at firms much larger than ours.
  • Organizing code - via projects
  • Developing reproducible reporting - via seamless integration of RMarkdown
  • Increasing efficiency of analysis - via "Find in Files", code reformatting, etc.
  • It's gotten better, but code debugging still feels substandard (cf. Visual Studio Code)
  • The workspace layout feels a bit stale compared to other environments, I spend a lot of time resizing panes.
  • Addins seem powerful, but difficulty with discovery and use has kept me from using them much
  • Must have for R developers. There's really no other game in town.
Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), FactSet
For coding in R[Studio], there is no other tool I could recommend more highly. Between the work put into the RStudio application itself and the deep integration of RStudio built packages, no other environment comes close to being as useful.
