Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed.

Docker configuration for the Linux builders of the R-hub package builder.

Most subfolders correspond to a platform configuration, e.g. debian-gcc-release contains the Dockerfile corresponding to the "Debian Linux, R-release, GCC" platform, whereas debian-gcc contains the Dockerfile that's used as base for all Debian GCC platforms, whose Dockerfiles start with FROM rhub/debian-gcc.

If you're interested in running one of the images, you can get it from Docker hub instead of building it yourself. E.g. you could run something like docker run -ti rhub/fedora-clang-devel bash. See table below for links. Also note that the rhub R package has helpers to use the images locally from R.
