How To Quickly Install Packages With A New R Installation

Okay, Joel, here it is. I got these instruction off of the Internet but I do not remember who was the original source.

  1. I keep this file in a RStudio project I call installed_packages.
  2. Before I upgrade I run the first two line to update the package_list.
  3. After I upgrade I go back to project, un-comment the install.packages line and run it.
  4. I also have a line in there if you want a csv copy of the installed packages.
#Get currently installed packages

#work
package_df < - as.data.frame(installed.packages())
package_list <- as.character(package_df$Package)
#write.csv(package_df, file = "package_df.csv")
#Re-install Install packages
#install.packages(package_list)

RStudioPortable

R-Studio is a really nice environment to develop R programs. Since I like portable versions of programs I created a PortableApps version of R-Studio last year and mentioned it in a PortableApps forum. Padraig asked if I would make it available. For those inquiring minds out there you can find it on SourceForge, RStudioPortable_0.97.551.paf.exe.

Enjoy!

Rcmdr for R-Portable or How to Create a Custom Shortcut in the PortableApps Menu

I have been playing around with Rcmdr since I saw several folks talk say good things about it. To make it play nicely R-Portable I decided to create my own PortableApps icon to launch R-Portable and automatically start Rcmdr. The procedure is similar to creating a shortcut for Rcmdr except that I will start R-Portable from a separate folder that contains a customized version of .Rprofile that automatically starts Rcmdr. So I created a  Rcmdr folder in my Portableapps program directory, created a DOS batch file that starts R-Portable with the “—sdi” option, and created a .Rprofile file like Scott Hyde had recommended. You can test your setup at this point. I am assuming you have previously installed R Commander. When you execute the batch file a DOS screen should briefly flash and both the R and the “sdi” version of the R Commander window should open.

To get a PortableApps icon to appear I created the PortableApps folder structure in Rcmdr, created an appinfo.ini file that referenced the batch file as the program executable, and copied the R icons from R-Portable into the “app\appinfo” folder. Now when I refresh my PortableApps icons I have a “R” icon for R Commander Portable to go with my existing icons for R Portable and RStudio Portable. Here is a zipped version of my Rcmdr folder,
Rcmdr.zip.
