Re: Using Django and R in a production environment?

" if you write your own R  analysis routines, why have them run in a web system"

Two issues here:

1. We are writing R routines for someone else; who needs 'analysis on demand'
2. A web system means that multiple users in multiple locations can all readily access the same analysis routines (but with different data sets)

I agree that if you work on a desktop, with no need to access shared data or use the same analysis routines as anyone else, then a web interface makes no sense.

Basically we are trying to harness two disparate systems; each of which is very powerful in their own sphere, to create an application that is really useful for better and more efficient science.

well R itself is widely used in production... but the intersection
with Django is very small.  (after all, if you write your own R
analysis routines, why have them run in a web system)
