‘svGUI’ provides a general mechanism to implement GUIs in R, including own storage environment, and information on the GUI status. For instance, one would know if a dialog box is displayed, is modal, or what was the result of the last dialog box used. Moreover, a mechanisms to use fallback in case the desired GUI is not available (for instance, by using a textuyal version of the dialog box) is also implemented. To look at an example of use, see the ‘svDialogs’ R package.

## Installation

You can install the released version of ‘svGUI’ from CRAN with:

install.packages("svGUI")

You can also install the latest developement version. Make sure you have the ‘devtools’ R package installed:

install.packages("devtools")

Use install_github() to install the ‘svGUI’ package from Github (source from master branch will be recompiled on your machine):

devtools::install_github("SciViews/svGUI")

R should install all required dependencies automatically, and then it should compile and install ‘svGUI’.

Latest devel version of ‘svGUI’ (source + Windows binaires for the latest stable version of R at the time of compilation) is also available from appveyor.

## Usage

library("svGUI")

library(help = "svGUI")
help("svGUI-package")
vignette("svGUI") # None is installed with install_github()
