Installing the development version from GitHub
If you want to install our development version from GitHub, use
devtools::install_github(repo = "florianhartig/BayesianTools", subdir = "BayesianTools", dependencies = T, build_vignettes = T)
New developments will be done in extra branches and will be tested before merging in the developtment branch, so the developmet version should usually be usable (consider it in a beta stage), while feature branches should be considered alpha.
Windows users: the package contains c++ code, so if you compile yourself, you need RTools installed.
To install a specific (older) release, decide for the version number that you want to install in https://github.com/florianhartig/BayesianTools/releases (version numbering corresponds to CRAN, but there may be smaller releases that were not pushed to CRAN) and run, e.g.
devtools::install_github(repo = "florianhartig/BayesianTools", subdir = "BayesianTools", ref = "v0.0.10", dependencies = T, build_vignettes = T)
with v0.0.10 replaced by the appropriate version number.
We highly welcome questions by users, so don't be shy - any questions, even if it feels "stupid", helps us to understand how we can improve the interface, documentation, or code of the package.
Work on this package was facilicated through meetings of Cost Action FP 1304 Profound.
