I'm trying to figure out a couple of things:
- whether this is a packrat or RStudio issue
- how to phrase it if I raised an issue on GitHub.
I'm working on a project (a packaged shiny app) that uses
packrat to manage dependencies. For this project I use an older version of R (3.3.0) - because of this I don't actually have any corresponding packages installed on my computer (I thought the
packrat library would suffice). When I try to build the binary shiny app package using the RStudio GUI (Build tab > Build Binary Package) I get a bunch of package errors which indicate that R is looking for the packages in the general and not the project library.
If I run
devtools::build(".", binary = TRUE) in the console I do not get any errors.
I'm trying to understand why this is happening and whether it's expected or unexpected behaviour.
