    This application is paid. And I'm from a country where you can't buy an offer. I don't know about this

    RStudio allows you to code in both R and Python while also offering the same development tools as Spyder. Has a similar interface where you can view figures, variables, files, documentation, and so on, as MATLAB does.

    RStudio is not a Python IDE. RStudio shouldn't be seen as an alternative to Spyder. R should be seen as an alternative to Python.
