System requirements

This package is supported for Linux, but should also work on Mac OS X and Windows. It has been tested with Github Actions for R 3.5, 3.6 and 4.0 on the following systems Ubuntu, Windows Server and Mac OS X.

Step 1: Installing from CRAN or GitHub (Required)

dyngen is available on CRAN, so you can install it with the following command.

If you would like to install the development version of dyngen from GitHub instead, run the following command. Use at your own risk!

install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("dynverse/dyngen@devel", dependencies = TRUE)

Step 3: Download cacheable files (Optional)

dyngen will sometimes download files from GitHub and cache them for later use (if you executed step 2). After installation, you can already download these files so they will not be downloaded at a later stage.

library(utils)
library(tools)

zip <- tempfile(fileext = ".zip")
download.file("https://github.com/dynverse/dyngen/archive/data_files.zip", zip)
unzip(zip, exdir = getOption("dyngen_download_cache_dir"), overwrite = TRUE)
