I’ve used Rstudio on my MacBook in the past to Sweave document and create Rmarkdown document. I haven’t used it for couple months, now I just attended the Rstudio conference workshop and I found out that my Rstudio stopped working.
The exact problem I had was if I click New file -> R Markdown, then this spinning wheel shows up with a message “R markdown…”
And this takes forever and nothing happens.
Then I have to force quit Rstudio.
If I click New File -> Shiny Web App, then the same thing, a spinning wheel with a message “Checking installed packages…” which goes on forever and I have to force quit again.
Things I have tried to fix this:
- I updated my MacBook to the latest update on system
- I downloaded and re-installed the newest version of R and Rstudio.
Any advice is welcome.
I’ve learned so much at the Rstudio 2018 workshop and I really hope that I can try these on my laptop, so please help me to fix this problem.
