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.
