oldr

Travis-CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status

oldr was created for the simple purpose of allowing users of old versions of R to install the latest available versions (on CRAN) of R packages compatible with their version of R.

Installing

If you have devtools, you can install via

library(devtools)
install_github("duckmayr/oldr")

If you don't, you can download or clone the repository, then use R CMD build oldr and R CMD INSTALL oldr_0.1.0.tar.gz

(For more details on installing the package from source if you don't have devtools, see, e.g., this page)

Once the package is installed, you just need to run

oldr::install.compatible.packages("package_name")

to install a package named package_name.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
