Initial commit.
[software/r-guix-install.git] / README
1 This R package provides a single procedure =guix.install=, which
2 allows R users to install R packages via Guix right from within their
3 running R session.
4
5 If the requested R package does not exist in Guix at this time, the
6 package and all its missing dependencies will be imported recursively
7 and the generated package definitions will be written to
8 =~/.Rguix/packages.scm=. This record of imported packages can be used
9 later to reproduce the environment, and to add the packages in
10 question to a proper Guix channel (or Guix itself).
11
12 =guix.install= not only supports installing packages from CRAN, but
13 also from Bioconductor or even arbitrary git or mercurial
14 repositories, replacing the need for installation via devtools.
