The vmr package allow you to manage virtual
environment with and for R.
You can develop, run tests, build packages binaries easily in a clean environment with R pre-installed and configured.
It uses Vagrant tool to
manage this virtual environments, call boxes. A
box is a Vagrant environment (bundle) containing a
__virtual environment_ (such as a virtual machine) for a specific
provider (such as VirtualBox).
Official vmr boxes list is available here : https://app.vagrantup.com/VMR/
Boxes use default user and password: vagrant.
Boxes are available for development and test, do not use it for production.
Take a quick overview from userR2022 poster presentation.
The vmr package needs two tools to work
Vagrant to manage boxes and a provider
to instantiate the virtual environment.
* Vagrant (>= 2.2.0) : download and install from https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html.
* A provider, currently only VirtualBox (>= 6.1.14) is available in vmr boxes. Install it.
