apsimx: R package for APSIM-X (NextGen) and APSIM Classic (7.x)
This package allows for interaction with APSIM-X ("Next Generation") and/or APSIM 'Classic' (7.10). It can inspect, edit, run and read APSIM files in both platforms. The format is JSON for APSIM-X and XML for 'Classic'.
Imported R packages: DBI, jsonlite, knitr, RSQLite, tools, utils, xml2
Suggested R packages: BayesianTools, datasets, daymetr, FedData, ggplot2, GSODR, listviewer, maps, mvtnorm, nasapower, nloptr, reactR, rmarkdown, soilDB, sp, spData, sf, ucminf
and/or APSIM (7.x) 'Classic'
NOTE ON REQUIREMENTS:
Current (Nov 2021) versions of APSIM Next Gen do not require additional software to run on Mac or Linux. The dotnet runtime environment is shipped with the image/package.
For current versions (Nov 2021), on Windows, the 'Microsoft Windows Desktop Runtime' 3.1.14 is required. The installer also updated GTK3 to 3.24.20 during the installation.
For older versions of APSIM Next Gen (before Sept 2021) the mono framework was required to run on Mac and Linux (Debian). Mono should be installed first (in Mac and Linux).
If you are running the latest version of APSIM Next Gen (Sept 2021 or later), you do not need to install the Mono Framework.
Mono framework download: https://www.mono-project.com/download/stable/
.Net Core download for Mac: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download
APSIMX download: https://www.apsim.info/download-apsim/
Since APSIM Next Gen 2021.04.01 (at least) .NET framework 4.6 or higher is required for Windows and I have had to update the Mono framework to 6.12 on Mac (again this applies to pre Sep 2021).
If you want to install this package from github try in R:
library(devtools) \ devtools::install_github("femiguez/apsimx") \ library(apsimx)
or the lightweight 'remotes' package
library(remotes) \ remotes::install_github("femiguez/apsimx") \ library(apsimx)
It is not necessary to build the vignettes as they are also at: https://femiguez.github.io/apsimx-docs/
Note: Building the vignettes does not require the presence of APSIM-X as I have recently eliminated the APSIM-X dependency.
Still, if you want to build the vignettes, then use this instead of the second line above:
devtools::install_github("femiguez/apsimx", build_vignettes = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))
If you do build the vignettes, there is an introduction to the package
and a document which might help you build your own scripts either in R or other languages
If you have any questions contact Fernando E. Miguez (femiguez at iastate.edu)
