A 'HTTP' Server Graphics Device

A graphics device for R that is accessible via network protocols. This package was created to make it easier to embed live R graphics in integrated development environments and other applications. The included 'HTML/JavaScript' client (plot viewer) aims to provide a better overall user experience when dealing with R graphics. The device asynchronously serves graphics via 'HTTP' and 'WebSockets'.
