RStudio is an integrated development environment (IDE) for R. It includes a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, as well as tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management.

RStudio can be run in a browser as OnDemand service. This is the most straighforward and simplest way.


Another option is to use Kubernetes service, which offers RStudio as

Remote desktop

Using Remote desktop, RStudio can be also run from a module or as a Singularity image.

This option is recommended to advanced users or as a fallback option in case OnDemand and/or Kubernetes service are down.


module avail rstudio/

Singularity image:

cd /cvmfs/
qsub /cvmfs/

The job will send you email with URL and credentials to login. See header of the file for requested resources, version of R etc.


The end of session in web browser does not quit the job. For deleteing the job use command qdel JOBID
