Here's what I'd like to accomplish:
Once I install a package locally, I'd like to push the built binaries to Artifactory, so that the next user in my org does not have to also build the source code. Packrat takes forever to download and build the source for our dependencies, and I'd like to push the built binaries to our artifactory CRAN mirror so that my colleagues don't have to build the same deps. Here's the documentation I'm looking at for pushing the built packages: https://www.jfrog.com/confluence/display/JFROG/CRAN+Repositories
The fact that packrat::restore() can take 20-30 minutes is a major limiting factor for adoption at my company, so I'm looking for ways to resolve it. I'm open to other suggestions as well. I tried using renv but it seems like it's not much faster, because it also builds the source.
