I’m finally getting around to trying out RStudio remotely through RStudio Server (on a Docker instance FWIW).
Same look and feel I’m used to with RStudio – excellent!
One issue I’m running into a lot here involves the terminal tab. I’m finding that as I switch back and forth between RStudio and other program windows or browser tabs, the connection to the terminal seems to be lost quite frequently (typing in the terminal tab gives no response).
This can be fixed by simply opening a new terminal, but this feels hacky. Two suggestions:
- Build in a “Reconnect” button, much like Jupyter has for reconnecting to disconnected kernels
- Make closing terminal tabs easier (AFAICT there’s no keyboard shortcut for doing so, and there’s no “x” in the sub-window of terminal tabs – I have to click through the drop down window and select “close” each time.
