It would be nice to have the ability to install R packages such as data.table, tidyverse etc.
Thanks for the suggestion - agreed, it would be super useful. Our R repls are kinda in beta right now where they're missing a lore of core features. We plan on open sourcing our language system so that others can contribute (which will speed this up as well)!
@Tim Chen: Thanks for the prompt response!
@Tim Chen: Any news on this? R is pretty useless without the ability to install packages :-(
@Tim Chen: Yep - I use R for teaching and repl.it would be great. But has to have some kind of package functionality!
