I am using the Statet plugin since 2015/16. Though some experience with the IDE in general may be of value using this software, in my opinion this is the best IDE available today. I use this software intensely for scientific purposes, where especially full script solutions are necessary. The stability of this software is absolutely convincing and we strongly recommend using the eclipse IDE with the Statet plugin.

My first experience with IDEs for R was working with TinnR, which I remember as a very useful tool but with the limitation that this software was restricted to Windows (I currently work in Linux). StatET was introduced to me in the context of a job in the area of remote sensing and I was thrilled by the possibility of working with different programming languages in the same workbench. I found out in a book about RStudio and I commonly use it for teaching purposes and I have seen a lot of progress in the development of this software. Despite installing and setting StatET may be complicated, I still consider this as the best IDE for R. The functions I love most in StatET is the display of objects in Object Browser.

It is quite hard to get working with R4 and compiling the rj package. For me to install rj on macos I had to do the following:

* brew install llvm # check llvm first in path, otherwise: `export PATH=/usr/local/opt/llvm/bin:$PATH`
* brew install pcre2
* sudo ln -s /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/usr/include/* /usr/local/include/
* Add to .bash_profile the lines:

export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/opt/llvm/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/local/opt/llvm/lib
export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/opt/llvm/include -I/usr/local/opt/llvm/include/c++/v1/
alias ld='ld.lld'

* source ~/.bash_profile
* wget
* R CMD INSTALL rj_4.0.2-4.tar.gz
* Install StatET from Eclipse Marketplace

Thanks so much for this development. Used in combination with Dbeaver, subclipse, egit and MoreClipboard, it's a powerfull tool for everyday scripting. The outline in complex sweave documents makes it very easy to navigate.
