ess-rdired to browse objects, I followed the ESS manual and added the following to my
(autoload 'ess-rdired "ess-rdired"
"View *R* objects in a dired-like buffer." t)
When I do M-x
ess-rdired, a buffer listing the objects in your current environment appears.
However, when I press shortcuts like p, v I get this error:
"no ESS process is associated with this buffer now."
ess-rdired update info of objects when they are changed?
I had the same problem and sure enough C-c C-s solves it. I added the following function to my dot emacs file to automate this. I mapped the function to C-c o which will load rdired or refresh it. Any improvements would be very welcome!
(defun ess-R-show-objects ()
"Calls rdired and associates with R process"
(if (get-buffer "*R*") ;;Only run if R is running
(message "No R process")
(global-set-key (kbd "\C-co") 'ess-R-show-objects)
