[Tex/LaTex] What’s the best .Rnw editor


I'm trying to find out what people use for editing .Rnw files.

Desirable features are:

  • Auto R code completion
  • Auto LaTeX code completion
  • Cross platform
  • Automatic display of R function documentation
  • Spell check
  • Simple R console access
  • Syntax highlighting for both R code and LaTeX code
  • Document structure
  • Function extraction tool for R code. With this, the user highlights a chunk of code that produces a value and the tool converts this into a function with the appropriate inputs and value.

Personally, I like emacs+ess+auctex. I think it hits all your points, but unfortunately it has an epic learning curve.
