Status

pak installs R packages from CRAN, Bioconductor, GitHub, and local files and directories. It is an alternative to install.packages() and devtools::install_github(). pak is fast, safe and convenient.

Installation

Install the package from CRAN:

install.packages("pak")

(After installation, you might also want to run pak::pak_setup(); it’ll be run automatically when needed but you might want to do it now to save some time later.)

Usage

Call pkg_install() to install CRAN or Bioconductor packages:

pak::pkg_install("usethis")

To install GitHub packages, use the user/repo syntax:

pak::pkg_install("r-lib/usethis")

All dependencies will be installed as well, to the same library.

Why pak?

Safe

Convenient
