 Well, let's say that 80% of functionality should work if leaflet works.
 There are some stand-alone htmlwidgets (e.g. cubeview) that may need
 some attention.
 I have never tried using R from jupyter, so have no idea what is needed
 to get things to work...

 Edzer, regarding all the web-based rendering such as leaflet / mapview
 or other htmlwidgets (eg. plotly) you are wise not to work in RStudio,
 as the viewer usually causes more trouble than being helpful. All that
 ported js code is written for the browser so will work best there
 (unless you use IE, but who does that?). I find myself setting
 optins(viewer = NULL) way more often than I'd like, but it's better than
 crashing the whole RStudio (and hence R) instance just because you want
 to render something for quick inspection.
