RStudio Server notebook image

With the RStudio Server notebook image, you can access the RStudio IDE, an integrated development environment for R. The R programming language is used for statistical computing and graphics to support data analysis and predictions.

To use the RStudio Server notebook image, you must first build it by creating a secret and triggering the BuildConfig, and then enable it in the OpenShift AI UI by editing the rstudio-rhel9 image stream. See Building the RStudio Server notebook images for more information.
