RSpace 1.40, Jan. 2017 – Tools for Coders

Github and Code Snippets in RSpace

RSpace is designed to be flexible enough to support data management workflows for virtually any researcher. With technology now such an important part of modern research, we wanted to meet the needs of computer scientists and researchers who use code stored in github. That’s why, in version 1.40, we’ve introduced two new code-related features.

GitHub LogoUsers can now link to your Github repositories from RSpace documents, making it easy to show your downstream audience your work there. See how in this video.

Additionally, for users who prefer to embed code snippets directly in RSpace, we have included a new “insert code snippet” tool in the text editor. To use it, click the new code snippet icon.

In the popup dialog, choose which language this code snippet is written in, paste in your code, and click OK. That’s it, you’re done. A number popular languages are supported including java, Latex, R, SQL, Python and more.

If you are a computer scientists who enjoys contributing to github projects, please consider helping us with our API. Learn more on our github page here.

As always, if you have feedback, questions or suggestions, please click the RSpace help button at the bottom right of the RSpace interface to start a live chat session with an RSpace product specialist!
