Announcing Public RStudio Package Manager

Announcing Public RStudio Package Manager


Today we are excited to announce the availability of https://packagemanager.rstudio.com. This service offers the R community access to the benefits of RStudio Package Manager including pre-built package binaries for Linux and historical CRAN checkpoints.

This service builds off of the wonderful work done by CRAN, and is a supplement, not a replacement, for RStudio’s popular CRAN mirror. For example, this service does not accept or test packages - only packages available on a traditional CRAN mirror are available here. But, in addition to a regular CRAN mirror, this service offers historical access to older versions of CRAN and access to pre-built packages for Linux. Please use this RStudio Community channel for questions or to submit feedback. More information is available in this FAQ.

Please consult the RStudio Terms of Service prior to use. If you use R in an organization, we recommend evaluating RStudio Package Manager which includes all the benefits of this service plus additional controls and features for professional data science teams.
