I'm relatively new to R and Rstudio but I am seeking to learn to integrate R and python into projects and would like to use Rstudio as my IDE. I have followed this link to get everything set up.
This page suggests that I should be creating python virtualenvs for each project, however, when I run
reticulate::py_config() it appears that Rstudio is only finding my anaconda distribution.
What I have done is:
1 Fresh install of R, Rstudio and Python
#in windows powershell run as admin
2 Create directory called test_r on my desktop.
3 cd into that directory
4 create a virtual environment
5 activate the environment
#leave power shell open with .venv active
6 open Rstudio
7 Install reticulate
8 set wd to my test_r directory
9 create a .Rprofile with the text
Sys.setenv(RETICULATE_PYTHON = ".venv\\Scripts\\python")
10 restart the R session
This still shows that reticulate is calling the anaconda distribution rather than my straight python installation.
python: C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Continuum/anaconda3/python.exe libpython: C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Continuum/anaconda3/python37.dll pythonhome: C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Continuum/anaconda3 version: 3.7.4 (default, Aug 9 2019, 18:34:13) [MSC v.1915 64 bit (AMD64)] Architecture: 64bit numpy: C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Continuum/anaconda3/Lib/site-packages/numpy numpy_version: 1.16.5 python versions found: C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Continuum/anaconda3/python.exe C:/Users/user.name/AppData/Local/Programs/Python/Python38-32/python.exe
Any help or guidance would be much appreciated as I have been convinced that integrating python and R is the best way to solve a particular problem facing my org but if I can't get this running then I'll have to hunt around again for a solution.
Thanks in advance,
