brain

A future-friendly V8-powered neural network framework for R.

Installation

brain depends on Chrome V8, below is how to install it.

Binary packages for OS-X or Windows can be installed directly from CRAN:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("brain-r/brain")

Installation from source on Linux requires libv8 3.14 or 3.15 (no newer!). On Debian or Ubuntu use libv8-3.14-dev:

sudo apt-get install -y libv8-3.14-dev

On Fedora we need v8-314-devel:

sudo yum install v8-314-devel

On CentOS / RHEL we install v8-devel via EPEL:

sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install v8-devel

On OS-X use v8@3.15 (not regular v8) from Homebrew:

brew install v8@3.15

On other systems you might need to install libv8 from source. A compatible version of V8 3.14 is available from https://github.com/v8-314/v8. Build instructions are in the build directory.
