Updates to the Deducer family of packages
(This article was first published on Fells Stats » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Over the past month there have been a number of package updates in the deducer ecosystem. Deducer is a general purpose, extensible, data analysis GUI. It is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to proprietary data analysis software such as SPSS, JMP, and Minitab. It has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks, and an excel-like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames.

More information is available in the online manual:

http://www.deducer.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DeducerManual

And there is an intro video in youtube:

Deducer 0.6-3
The main change in Deducer 0.6-3 is an update to the (award winning) Plot Builder GUI to make use of the new features in ggplot2 0.9-0.

New plot builder features: Part 1

New plot builder features: Part 2

DeducerSpatial 0.4
A Deducer plug-in for spatial data analysis. Includes The ability to plot and explore open street map and Bing satellite images. Currently there is not much here in terms of heavy data analysis, but there are some great tools for importing and exploring spatial data.

DeducerPlugInScaling 0.1-0
A Deducer plug-in for factor analysis, reliability analysis and discriminant analysis.

Version 0.1-0 includes some general improvements as well as a dialog for linear discriminant analysis (thanks to Helios De Rosario-Martinez).

DeducerExtras 1.5
Added functionality for Deducer. This package includes additional dialogs for calculating distribution function values, cluster analysis, and more.

Version 1.5 includes some general improvements along with a new dialog implementing Friedman's test, and Kendall's W test (thanks to Helios De Rosario-Martinez).

RStudio, Revolution Analytics and Deducer: A Tale of Three GUIs | (R news & tutorials)
I’m in the process of moving from SPSS to R at the moment. It’s not been the easiest of rides, but then learning how to do a core part of your job never really should be. It’s been fun, though – don’t get me wrong – it’s definitely been an adventure!! Here I’m going to review my (limited) experience with some of the GUIs available for R. Don’t shout at me if I haven’t fully tested them – these are the views of a newbie (n00b). This is by no means intended to be a fully-detailed or fully-researched account of the programs here. I actually think they are all great and have been using them interchangeably during the learning process. Best of all, as they are all free, it has meant that changing between the three as I learn has cost me nothing, and I’ve picked up bits and pieces of new ideas from each of them. I’m writing this in the hope that others will give them all a go and learn something too.

Reading Excel data is easy with JGR and XLConnect
(This article was first published on Fells Stats » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Despite the fact that Excel is the most widespread application for data manipulation and (perhaps) analysis, R's support for the xls and xlsx file formats has left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, the XLConnect package has been created to fill this void, and now JGR 1.7-8 includes integration with XLConnect package to load .xls and .xlsx documents into R.

Not fancy, but very useful.

Deducer - Deducer Manual
Deducer is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to proprietary data analysis software such as SPSS, JMP, and Minitab. It has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks, and an excel-like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames. The goal of the project is two fold.Provide an intuitive interface so that non-technical users can learn and perform analyses without programming getting in their way.Increase the efficiency of expert R users when performing common tasks by replacing hundreds of keystrokes with a few mouse clicks. Also, as much as possible the GUI should not get in their way if they just want to do some programming.Deducer is designed to be used with the Java based R console JGR, though it supports a number of other R environments (e.g. Windows RGUI and RTerm).

R GUI now offers interactive graphics – Deducer 0.4-2 connects with iplots
Earlier today, Ian Fwllows has announced the release of Deducer 0.4-2 and DeducerExtras 1.2 to CRAN (I copy his announcement here): Deducer 0.4-2 contains a few bug fixes, and an interface to the iplots package. With the new iplots interface it is now possible to do interactive plots with Deducer. An introductory example screen cast (by Ian) is available on the tube:

DeducerExtras 1.2 contains a few new dialogs including ‘load data from package’, and ‘t-test power’.
Additionally, a new Windows R/JGR/Deducer installer is available which installs R-2.12.0, JGR with it’s launcher, Deducer, DeducerExtras, and DeducerPlugInScaling. It is available on the Deducer website:

ggplot2 plot builder is now on CRAN! (through Deducer 0.4 GUI for R)
Ian fellows, a hard working contributer to the R community (and a cool guy), has announced today the release of Deducer (0.4) to CRAN (scheduled to update in the next day or so).
This major update also includes the release of a new plug-in package (DeducerExtras), containing additional dialogs and functionality.

Following is the e-mail he sent out with all the details and demo videos.

Deducer
Deducer is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to proprietary data analysis software such as SPSS, JMP, and Minitab. It has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks, and an excel-like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames. The goal of the project is two fold.

Provide an intuitive interface so that non-technical users can learn and perform analyses without programming getting in their way.
Increase the efficiency of expert R users when performing common tasks by replacing hundreds of keystrokes with a few mouse clicks. Also, as much as possible the GUI should not get in their way if they just want to do some programming.
Deducer is designed to be used with the Java based R console JGR, though it supports a number of other R environments (e.g. Windows RGUI and RTerm).

For those not familiar with Deducer, an online manual is available at: http://www.deducer.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DeducerManual

An introductory tour of Deducer (4.5 min):

There is also an “expert users introsuction” (8 min)

ggplot2 Plot Builder
The major change to Deducer is the inclusion of a new plotting GUI built on the ggplot2 package. This Google Summer of Code project provides an easy to use system to make anything from simple histograms, to custom publication ready graphics. Feel free to check out the video introduction:

Part 1 (6 min):

Part 2 (6 min):

Additional videos:
Templates (5 min):

Extending the Builder (4 min):

Deducer Extras
The DeducerExtras package is an add-on package containing a variety of additional analysis dialogs. These include:

Distribution quantiles
Single/multiple sample proportion tests
Paired t-test, and wilcoxon signed rank test
Levene’s test and bartlett’s test
K-means clustering
Hierarchical clustering
Factor analysis
Multi-dimensional scaling

Introduction to Deducer Extras (~2 min):

Final thanks
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the R community for choosing this project for a Google Summer of Code grant, and for the support and encouragement. In particular I would like to thank Hadley Wickham for mentoring the Plot Builder GUI, and Dirk Eddelbuettel for his organization of students and mentors.
