How to install an R package from source

I tried installing a package called RJSONIO from source, but I'm not able to do it.

I'm running Mac OSX.

Can someone please help me!

If you have your file located locally then you can use install.packages() and then set repos = NULL :

install.packages(path_to_file, repos = NULL, type="source")

path_to_file will represent the full path and file name:

  • On Windows it will look something like this: "C:\\RJSONIO_0.2-3.tar.gz".
  • On UNIX it will look like this: "/home/blah/RJSONIO_0.2-3.tar.gz".
