R.NET is an in-process bridge for the .NET Framework to access the R statistical language. R.NET works on Windows, Linux and MacOS.
On Windows, R.NET requires .NET Framework 4.5.2 and an access to the native R libraries installed with the R environment. R needs not necessarily be installed as a software on the executing machine, so long as DLL files are accessible. On Linux and MacOS, Mono is required, as well as an access to the native R libraries.

- If you want the latest binary distribution of R.NET and you are already familiar with managing dependencies with NuGet, head to R.NET on NuGet
- If you need a bit more documentation to get started, the prefered entry point is at http://jmp75.github.io/rdotnet
Building from source
To query NuGet and get the latest versions of packages used by R.NET:
.paket\paket.exe update .paket\paket.exe restore
Note that you may want to specify which msbuild engine to use (had woes with default detection)
set VisualStudioVersion=14.0 .\build.cmd NuGet
