### Getting started with Shinyscreen
Shinyscreen is ECI's mass spectrum inspection program. It was written
in R and exists as a R package. In order to run it, it is necessary to
start a R session.
While most students get to know R through R Studio, this development
environment (DE) is by no means the only one that can run R (indeed,
you do not even need a DE to run R: try it yourself, start a command
console and type `R` in there). The default choice of R DE on
`alien-one` currently is GNU Emacs with its *Emacs Speaks Statistics
(ESS)* mode.
### Getting started
1. Fire up emacs
2. `Alt-x` and `R` gets you an R session
3. Enter `library(shinyscreen)`
4. Enter `options(browser="chromium")`
5. Enter `launch()`
### JustInCase - Downloading instructions
Alternatively, there there are two icons on your desktop that will
start Shinyscreen immediately without a R session. One starts the
stable version of Shinyscreen (used in this course). The other runs a
development version (you can try it out if you feel adventurous).
### Material needed for the practical
