opencpu: The OpenCPU system for embedded scientific computing and reproducible research

The OpenCPU system exposes an HTTP API to R for embedded scientific computing. It can be used to build applications with integrated analysis and visualization, or to share and execute data, scripts or reports on centralized servers. The OpenCPU server can run either as a single-user server inside the interactive R session (using httpuv), or as a cloud server that builds on Ubuntu Linux and rApache. The current R package forms the core of the framework. When loaded in R, it automatically initiates the single-user server and displays the web address in the console. For more information, visit the OpenCPU website.
