I'm a big fan of console tools, and I was wondering if there was a way to color the R console output. I came across this tool called Radian with this attractive tagline.
A 21 century R console
So let's try it!
I've written a short
rocker/tidyverse as base image in order to start with batteries included.
FROM rocker/tidyverse:latest # -qq: No output except for errors RUN apt-get update -qq && apt-get -y install \ python3-pip && \ pip3 install radian CMD ["radian"]
Yes it must be shocking for R people,
radian is written in … Python.
Build, Run, Try
# build $ docker build --rm --pull -t radian . # run $ docker run -it --rm radian
Now I can use a awesome looking console! See it in action 1.
