Problems installing Trelliscopejs

rstudio
package-installation

#1

Hello,

I want to work with Gdelt using R, so i need gdeltr2 and for that i need to install Trelliscopejs...well...i already install devtools but when i do this:

install.packages("devtools")
library(devtools)
install_github("hafen/trelliscopejs")

R keep saying this:

Installation failed: Timeout was reached: Resolving timed out after 10000 milliseconds

or before that it doesnt know what is install_github.

i installed githubinstall and GDELTtools.

Please help! because i don´t get it.

ps: i have [RStudio 1.1.456 - Windows Vista/7/8/10] and [R-3.5.1]

It's possible you have a firewall blocking installation from github (hence the timeout).

If that is the case, then you can download the zip file from the github site and then install locally from source:
install.packages(path_to_file, repos = NULL, type = "source")

If so, you can also configure your proxy.

Be sure to be in a clean session (restart R) and load devtool. Or call devtools::install_github directly.

greetings from Venezuela.
