birdhousebuilder.recipe.r 0.1.3

A Buildout recipe to install R packages with Anaconda.

Latest Version: 0.1.4


birdhousebuilder.recipe.r is a Buildout recipe to install R Project packages with Anaconda.


The recipe requires that Anaconda is already installed. It assumes that Anaconda is installed at the default location in your home directory ~/anaconda. Otherwise you need to set the Buildout option anaconda-home to the correct location.

It installs the r package from a conda channel with additional packages from a given R repository. R will then be available in Anaconda ~/anaconda/bin/R.

The recipe depends on birdhousebuilder.recipe.conda.

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:

Buildout option with the root folder of the Anaconda installation. Default: $HOME/anaconda.
R Project repository with R packages.
List of R packages which should be installed (space separated).

Example usage

Example usage in your buildout.cfg to install R with Anaconda and additional R packages (sp, raster, ncdf) from a R repository:

parts = r_pkgs

anaconda-home = /home/myself/anaconda

recipe = birdhousebuilder.recipe.r
repo =
pkgs = sp raster ncdf
