R-side code to implement an R editor and IDE in Komodo IDE (https://www.activestate.com/products/komodo-ide/) with the SciViews-K extension.

Note that this package is maintained minimally in order to keep code that may be useful in another context. However, RStudio and VScode with R extensions are the R editors/IDEs that you should use today. Komodo + SciViews-K/svKomodo aimed to develop a similar R IDE back in the 2000’s/2010’s, but its development was stopped in 2016 when RStudio gained its popularity.
