Installing tidyverse systemwide


Previously, the user had to log into the interface and go into "Tool--> Install packages". Then select Repositary (CRAN), with the package 'tidyverse'. Then the download would take forever, installing etc. The current system that I recently built, I ran the following command at the cli on the OS (Ubuntu) right after installing R.

apt install --no-install-recommends r-cran-tidyverse

When I tested with the same process (Tools-->Install package--> tidyverse', the system goes through a very short process of installation. Can somebody confirm this is all I need?

This is in regards to Rstudio Server (Workbench).


Yup, that's all you need!
