Re: [Rd] Link between Qt GUI and R

There are two approaches that I would recommend, depending on your requirements:

  1. Write a Qt GUI application and embed R inside of it. Dirk has laid out that solution.
  2. Write the Qt GUI in R. Simon kindly mentioned qtgui but that is an obsolete package. You would do this using qtbase, which is currently available through Bioconductor. See: There is a binary for Mac OS X but not Windows yet, unfortunately.
