I know there are probably a million and one ideas that the R Studio IDE team have in development already, but something that I would use is an option within a folder in Windows Explorer that would create a
.Rproj file within that folder.
Below is an image of a similar feature that the git shell has, which starts a terminal at the specific location. I think it would be useful because I am often downloading or otherwise pulling a bunch of data into a file, and then having to start R Studio, selecting “Start a new Project at existing directory”, and then navigating back to the folder. Having the option to start the
.Rproj file from windows explorer and then being able to double-click to go directly to that project would be very nice.
Is that just me, or does anybody else think this is a good idea?
