R + Python in IDE: experiences



A while back I asked this question, and since then RStudio have come out with the very promising reticulate package, as well as native support for Python in the IDE, which is fantastic.

I was just wondering what the experiences are like for those out there using Python in the IDE. Would anybody like to share? I, for one, had problems with matplotlib -- I had it installed, I was using the correct version of Python (forced with py_config()), but it wouldn't work. Then, voilá, just started working recently (I'm using the daily builds, perhaps it was something there).

Has anybody had any problems? Any tips?
