Installation From Bioconductor
We recommend installation of the package via bioconductor.
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly=TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("clusterExperiment")
To install the most recent version of the package available on the development branch of bioconductor, follow the above instructions, after downloading the development version of bioconductor (see here for instructions).
If you are having problems installing/updating the package
gsl from source because your gsl installation is not found, this answer (and the comment following it) on stackoverflow may be of help.
Installation of Github Version:
We generally try to keep the bioconductor devel version up-to-date with the master branch of this git repository. But since this can require installing R and/or bioconductor development version, it can be convenient to be able to get just the most recent version from github.
You can install the github version via
develop branch is our development branch where we are actively updating features, and may contain bugs or be in the process of being updated. You should not use the
develop branch unless it passes TravisCI checks (see below) and you want to be using a very beta version.
The development branch can be installed via the
install_github command above, but indicating the
library(devtools) install_github("epurdom/clusterExperiment", ref="develop")
Below are status checks for the package. Note that occassionally errors do not appear here immediately. Clicking on the link will give you the most up-to-date status.
