Book Description

Little known to many, R works just as well with JavaScript—this book delves into the various ways both languages can work together. The ultimate aim of this work is to put the reader at ease with inviting JavaScript in their data science workflow. In that respect the book is not teaching one JavaScript but rather we show how little JavaScript can greatly support and enhance R code. Therefore, the focus is on integrating external JavaScript libraries and no prior knowledge of JavaScript is required.

Key Features:

● Easy to pick up.
● An entry way to learning JavaScript for R.
● Covers topics not covered anywhere else.
● Easy to follow along.
