Requirements

This progression handler works only in the RStudio Console.

Use this progression handler by default

To use this handler by default whenever using the RStudio Console, add the following to your ~/.Rprofile startup file:

if (requireNamespace("progressr", quietly = TRUE)) {
  if (Sys.getenv("RSTUDIO") == "1" && !nzchar(Sys.getenv("RSTUDIO_TERM"))) {
    options(progressr.handlers = progressr::handler_rstudio)
  }
}

Examples

if (requireNamespace("rstudioapi", quietly = TRUE) && rstudioapi::isAvailable()) { handlers("rstudio") with_progress({ y <- slow_sum(1:10) }) print(y) }
