Native R package support

This chapter describes the specifics of working with public and private R packages repositories.

Environment tool

Use the tool (Environment > Packages) to install and manage R packages (install.packages, remove.packages, and available.packages commands supported).

This method records the applied changes to the environment.yml file of the respective notebook. As a result, the new configuration is automatically applied when opening the notebook.

.Rprofile files

To configure a custom R package repository, add an .Rprofile file to the notebook's Attached data or the home directory in a custom agent image (applicable for Datalore Enterprise).

If you want to use R Studio Package Manager you can set it up it there (or in other supported places if you use a custom docker image). If no CRAN url is specified, is used by default.

The .Rprofile file will be respected when installing environment for the notebook.

Custom R environment without Anaconda (for Datalore Enterprise users)

This custom environment sets a non-conda default environment with the R kernel.
