While trolling through R literature, came across some good GUI ‘s for R. I am currently experimenting with two of them .
Out of these I can recommend R Commander http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Misc/Rcmdr/
Not only is the GUI quite neat and clean, the interface actually prints out R code for you. so its a great help if you are learning R and want to learn and do projects at the same time. I imported a dataset of 200,000 rows and while it did take 3-5 secs longer than SAS or SPSS would have taken —Its very very good for a free STATS package. The graphics are also quite good , and I currently evaluating the modeling and scoring capabilities as well .
The second GUI is Rattle. http://rattle.togaware.com/radownload.html
It is slightly less easy to install than R Commander which automatically downloads the dependencies in terms of packages and its also bigger (nearly 15 mb) for a dependency named RGtk2.
Coming up , a side by side comparison of these two GUI’s in terms of modeling and a search for additional GUIs.
Speaking of search, there is a FireFox Add on for searching R specific material.
