JuniperKernel: Kernel for 'Jupyter'

Provides a full implementation of the 'Jupyter' <> messaging protocol in C++ by leveraging 'Rcpp' and 'Xeus' <>. 'Jupyter' supplies an interactive computing environment and a messaging protocol defined over 'ZeroMQ' for multiple programming languages. This package implements the 'Jupyter' kernel interface so that 'R' is exposed to this interactive computing environment. 'ZeroMQ' functionality is provided by the 'pbdZMQ' package. 'Xeus' is a C++ library that facilitates the implementation of kernels for 'Jupyter'. Additionally, 'Xeus' provides an interface to libraries that exist in the 'Jupyter' ecosystem for building widgets, plotting, and more <>. 'JuniperKernel' uses 'Xeus' as a library for the 'Jupyter' messaging protocol.
