To build sf from source you need the GDAL library. The easiest way to
install GDAL, as well as GEOS and PROJ, on a mac is with the framework
from Kyng Chaos which you can find here:
They are also available on Homebrew; brew search for gdal, proj and geos.
Assuming you install the frameworks from KyngChaos in the default
locations, you can use the following R script to build sf from source:
sf_config_args <- c(
install.packages("sf", configure.args = sf_config_args)
Adjust the paths if you install GDAL, PROJ and GEOS to different locations.
