Following the "If it hasn’t, please feel free to either ask on the RStudio Community forums." link on https://rdrr.io/cran/devtools/man/reload.html
I load renv the following way in jupyter notebok (IRkernel is installed in the system R):
Then I get the following error loading tidyverse:
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
namespace ‘rlang’ 0.4.7 is already loaded, but >= 0.4.9 is required
And indeed, rlang version in the system R is:
while renv has a newer version and loads tidyverse just fine:
── Attaching packages ...
It looks like IRkernel loads rlang-0.4.7 before renv kicks in and I can't find a way force it to reload rlang. This fails, for example:
detach("package:rlang", character.only = TRUE, unload = TRUE)
Error in detach("package:rlang", character.only = TRUE, unload = TRUE): invalid 'name' argument
Jupyter itself is installed into a virtualenv. What I'm trying to achieve is to have a dedicated virtualenv and renv per project and access both from jupyter notebook.
Obvious workaround is to upgrade the system rlang, but this may break reproducibility of older projects, assuming I have any.
