It's a while since I played around with Smultron.
Command-B in Smultron opens the Commands pane. There are some examples
of commands available. If you define a new command collection, e.g. R,
name, e.g. 'Source file', and place in the command window (lower half
of right side
of the Commands pane):
osascript -e 'tell application "R.app" to activate'
osascript -e "tell application \"R.app\" to cmd \"source(file="%%p",
R should start and the current file (%%p) passed to R.
You can select 'Inline' and define a shortcut, e.g. Command-R in
Smultron's Commands pane.
I expect someone who knows osascript well can do much better, e.g. if
the file path
contains blanks, etc. But this might get you going.
