Building R binaries for buildpack
The binaries for the build pack can be built using Heroku's vulcan build server.
Steps for building R on vulcan
Create a build server using vulcan:
vulcan create vulcan-build-r
vulcan-build-r is the name of the Heroku application created.
Initiate the build by running the
vulcan-build executable script:
The build-r script will be uploaded to the vulcan build server and executed.
The R sources and dependencies are downloaded and compiled, and the binary output is uploaded to S3.
During the build process, the outputs from
make will be displayed.
To configure the R version to build, edit the
rversion variable in the
Build script inspired by Noah Lorang's Rook on Heroku project.
