Hi there, I was trying to use reticulate in RStudio and to get it to use pypy rather than a "standard" python distro. The website for pypy seems to indicate that internally it is almost totally compatible with basePython - so I wondered if I might be able to link it with a Shiny dashboard to speed it up!
Since the internet seems silent on this I'm either asking the dumbest question out there, or this just perhaps this could be a useful question to ask.
I'm on Windows.
When I tried, I did the following:
- I pointed recticulate to pypy executable using the REviron method (LINK)
- tried loading reticulate "require(reticulate)"
I got this message:
"Error in py_initialize(config$python, config$libpython, config$pythonhome, :
python37.dll - The specified module could not be found."
Of course there is no "python37.dll" in the pypy root folder - but might there be an alternative .dll I could point reticulate to (or in a hacky way rename)? For example there is a file called "libpypy3-c.dll"
Any pointers gratefully received!
