RStudio Server and Github


#1

Hello,

I’m relatively new to R. I’ve been using R and RStudio desktop exclusively for about 18 months now. I recently decided to start using the open source edition of RStudio Server for my research lab. A server admin at my university is currently setting this up for me as a VM on my lab’s server. It’s not set up yet, but I have a couple questions about Github and RStudio Server.

First, is Github set up the same on the Server and Desktop versions of RStudio? Second, can each RStudio Server user have his/her own Github account linked so s/he can push/pull with Github within RStudio Server or can I only link one Github account to RStudio Server OSE that all users will access? Third, any tips or advice about running RStudio Server OSE in a research lab environment will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
