Using an R package on a Codeberg repo

I would like to include an R package installed using install_git() from Codeberg, (not install_github()) in a shinyapps application, however this is not supported.

Under package sources, in the shinyapps documentation it says:

please drop us a line in the [shinyapps Community] if the lack of support is a blocker for you.

https://docs.rstudio.com/shinyapps.io/getting-started.html#deploying-a-sample-application

So here I am.

Would this be possible?

Thanks

Hello @bgcarlisle ,

I had never heard of Codeberg before, so I googled for it and one of the entries was https://codeberg.org/mehrad/mehrad_R_package. They :wink: proposes to install their package with

if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_git(url = "https://codeberg.org/mehrad/mehrad_R_package/")

Why would this code (with change of package name of course) not work for you? Did you try it?
