Are you a bioinformatician who desires to manage R environments, install R, and install R packages using the command-line? Help develop beRi!
beRi "beri environments for R installations" is an R environment, R installation, and R package management system for R.
The project was initially conceptualized by Robert Gilmore. Gilmore proposed the project to hackseq18 where it was developed over 3 days by a great team of developers. It ultimately went on to win hackseq18.
What is beRi?
beRi is a suite of Python packages composed of the following components: (1) renv, a virtual environment manager for R; rinse, an R installation and R version manager; and (3) rut, an R utility tool for installing packages, managing native R configuration files, and setting up local CRAN-like repositories. These packages will be developed in separate repositories as standalone command-line interfaces (CLIs). beRi will also be developed in a separate repository but will depend on the other three packages.

In order to create something valuable to the R community including RStudio and rOpenSci, it is critical that we develop something that has credibility and creates reproducible environments. Below are some useful links and packages that have acted as a guide for helping to create this package:
