A Shiny App running recommenderlab can be found at https://mhahsler-apps.shinyapps.io/Jester/.

> library("recommenderlab")
> data("MovieLense")
> ### use only users with more than 100 ratings
> MovieLense100 <- MovieLense[rowCounts(MovieLense) >100,]
> MovieLense100
358 x 1664 rating matrix of class ‘realRatingMatrix’ with 73610 ratings.
> train <- MovieLense100[1:50]
> 
> ### learn user-based collaborative filtering recommender
> rec <- Recommender(train, method = "UBCF")
> rec
Recommender of type ‘UBCF’ for ‘realRatingMatrix’ 
learned using 50 users.
> 
> ### create top-N recommendations for new users (users 101 and 102)
> pre <- predict(rec, MovieLense100[101:102], n = 10)
> pre
Recommendations as ‘topNList’ with n = 10 for 2 users. 
> as(pre, "list")
