Beaker allows data exploration in various languages

Beaker is a code notebook that allows you to analyze, visualize, and document data using multiple programming languages including Python, R, Groovy, Julia, and Node. Beaker’s plugin-based polyglot architecture enables you to seamlessly switch between languages and add support for new languages.
