R language support enhanced in JetBrains plugin for IntelliJ IDEA

JetBrains has ramped up IntelliJ IDEA support for the R language with extra console and graphics integration, a working debugger and more.

According to Andrey Cheptsov, writing for the JetBrains blog, IntelliJ IDEA support has been available for “quite a while”, with JetBrains starting to contribute to developments more recently.

“JetBrains has helped re-implement some elements of the plugin and has significantly improved user experience by providing additional console and graphics integration, a working debugger, R-language markdown support, and advanced coding assistance,” he wrote.

The plugin has remained open source and is now compatible not only with IntelliJ IDEA but also with the entire IntelliJ platform family. The plugin now supports Extract and Inline refactorings and can automatically detecting code duplicates, replacing them during refactoring.

In addition, special inlays in the editor display the names of the function arguments, with a view to making the code easier to read. Parameter information can also be invoked directly, enabling developers to see the available signatures of the function and the expected argument name and type based on the caret position.
