Rocker: Run R in Docker containers

Docker and R? What’s not to like about that combination!

Rocker is a new project that offers an alternate system for running the R statistical and programming language in Docker containers. See how the name was derived? Rocker – R and Docker. Nice!

Rocker is a project of rOpenSci, which aims to transform science through open data.

Rocker is hosted on GitHub, with three containers already available in the repository – r-base, r-devel and rstudio. The last container (rstudio) provides R and an instance of RStudio Server. RStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for R.

Rocker was first announced here and the GitHub repository is accessible from here.
