I was playing around with rstudio.cloud after @mara tweeted about it, but it seems I can't get very far due to multiple packages not installing properly.
The packages in question seem to be
rgl, which I don't use directly but are dependencies of packages I would like to use, namely
The following error arises when I try to install
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) : unable to load shared object '/home/rstudio-user/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.4/quantreg/libs/quantreg.so': libRlapack.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ERROR: lazy loading failed for package ‘tadaatoolbox’ * removing ‘/home/rstudio-user/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.4/tadaatoolbox’
However, even after manually removing/reinstalling
quantreg and verifying that the file in question does indeed exist:
> file.exists("/home/rstudio-user/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.4/quantreg/libs/quantreg.so")  TRUE
I still get the same error.
sjPlot, there are more errors, apparently coming down to
TMB not being able to install properly.
When I had similar issues with package installations on Ubuntu Xenial, I could fix them by installing the
r-base-dev system package or similar means, which leads me to assume that the docker image I assume RStudio Cloud is powered by might lack certain packages, but that's just a wild guess on my part.
Furthermore, I would like to state that I am indeed aware RStudio Cloud is in Alpha and I can not expect anything to work perfectly just yet, I just wanted to play around with it and give feedback on possible issues.
I hope this is the right place for this topic, there aren't any other topics re rstudio.cloud around here so I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes.
