I just wanted to post the guts of a script that Colin Higgins (fellow Data Scientist at SVDS) wrote.
# step1 wget https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda-latest-MacOSX-x86_64.sh # step2 chmod +x Miniconda-latest-MacOSX-x86_64.sh # step3 -- have to type spacebar and "yes" ./Miniconda-latest-MacOSX-x86_64.sh # step4 source ~/.bashrc # step5 conda update conda -y # step6 conda create -y -n anaconda_r -c r r-irkernel r-recommended r-essentials anaconda
Now, switch into the
anaconda_r environment (which will prepend your PATH in that one terminal ONLY) with:
source activate anaconda_r
and install extra packages like so:
conda install -c r rpy2 -y
This made it so that both the R kernel, python kernel, and the rpy2 package were all working in the same environment (my previous blog post was a temporary stop-gap that couldn’t get there).
