RcppCore/drat: The GitHub R Repository for Rcpp

 

About

This drat repository provides pre-releases and test builds for Rcpp and related packages.

Current Content

Please see here for source packages currently in the ghrr repo, and see here for (old !) Windows binaries for R 3.2.*.

Setup

Method One: Simply install the drat CRAN package the usual way via install.packages("drat", repos="http://cran.rstudio.com").

Add one line to your .Rprofile file (or to Rprofile.site):
drat:::add("RcppCore")
That's it! Now use install.packages() or update.packages() and the Rcpp drat will be considered just like the standard repositories for R.

Method Two: A simple one-off approach can also pass the repo information to install.packages() (and, simimlarly, to update.packages()):
install.packages("Rcpp", repo="https://RcppCore.github.io/drat")
