This function starts a browser based GUI. Please visit the github page of gWidgetsWWW2 for an explanation how this toolkit works.

gmkin(script_name, show.log = FALSE)



During development, a script name with a local working version of gmkin can be passed. Defaults to the location of the gmkin.R script shipped with the package.


During development, it may be useful to see the log of the Rook apps.


The function is called for its side effect, namely starting the GUI in a browser. For the curious, the desperate or the adventurous, the gmkin app (a GWidgetsApp object) is returned.
