writeIPA opens a shiny gadget in the viewer pane of RStudio to let users insert a sequence of IPA symbols into the source pane or console. Users can choose to use phonetic features (such as aspirated, schwa, vl for voiceless, vd for voiced, etc.) to find IPA symbols or use the X-SAMPA input method directly. Note that due to the special meanings of backslash(\) in programming, backslashes(\) in X-SAMPA symbols are replaced with slashes(/).
