1 RStudio Package Manager Admin Guide Introduction

RStudio Package Manager organizes and centralizes R packages across your team, department, or the entire organization.

Traditionally, R packages enter the organization from a variety of sources including, but not limited to:

  • CRAN
  • Bioconductor
  • Github
  • Internally developed package sources

RStudio Package Manager empowers R users to access packages and reproduce environments while giving IT control and visibility into package use.

Tip: There is a left-hand navigation pane that displays the chapters and subchapters that are in this administrator guide. Some chapters contain subchapters that may not initially display when navigating this guide. To expand a chapter’s subchapters, simply click the title of the chapter. If there are no subchapters within the chapter, then clicking the chapter title does not display any subchapters.
