rbundler: Rbundler manages an application's dependencies systematically
Rbundler manages a project-specific library for dependency
package installation. By specifying dependencies in a DESCRIPTION file
in a project's root directory, one may install and use dependencies
in a repeatable fashion without requiring manual maintenance.
rbundler creates a project-specific R library in
'PROJECT_ROOT/.Rbundle' (by default) and a project-specific
'R_LIBS_USER' value, set in 'PROJECT_ROOT/.Renviron'. It supports
dependency management for R standard "Depends", "Imports",
"Suggests", and "LinkingTo" package dependencies. rbundler also
attempts to validate and install versioned dependencies, such
as ">=", "==", "<=". Note that, due to the way R manages package
installation, differing nested versioned dependencies are not
allowed. For example, if your project depends on packages A (== 1),
and B (== 2), but package A depends on B (== 1), then a nested
dependency violation will cause rbundler to error out.
