The guys at Statace released major updates- I am particularly excited for the ability to create a custom GUI box for your own analysis or for sharing with consulting clients or students.
What does that mean? Basically they are making it a bit like R Commander Extensions- so if you have a package or analysis you would rather do visually (than code) – you can create a GUI module for it. The modular extension is quite cool in my opinion, but further proof will be in how well designed the pudding is.
Public sharing of results
Now you can share your analysis results for the world to see (example). Just click Share in the results pane.
Google Drive integration
We added integration with Google Drive. This makes collaboration and synchronization of large files even easier. Don’t forget we also support Dropbox. Just click the Connect to menu in the file manager.
Plots zoom and SVG export
Now you can open plots in a separate window that supports zoom in and zoom out. From it, you can also export to the SVG format which is ideal for printing. Just click the lens icon next to any plot.
Point-and-click PCA + data transformation without R knowledge
You can now carry out a PCA by just pointing and clicking though Analysis > Dimensional Analysis > Principal Components Analysis. We also added the Data menu which allows you to filter and sort datasets without any knowledge of R.
(Secret) Build your own visual dialog box to run R code
Do you have colleagues who don’t know R but need to use functionality you developed? Do you do consulting and want your customers to be able to run your models with point-and-click? Do you want to share a piece of R code with the world in an easy-to-use way?
StatAce now allows you to easily create a custom graphical interface for your R code. The process is entirely visual (no coding) and is what we use to build our own Data & Analysis menus (e.g. the bivariate correlation and linear regression dialog boxes). We are testing the functionality with a limited number of users, and their feedback has been great. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to request early access.
