Couple of questions about how CRAN is building packages for OSX under R 3.4.X
El Cap+, prompted by our package (OpenMx) failing CRAN builds (despite building
Q1: Is it the case that there’s no equivalent of the win.build system for
package creators to test their packages against before submission?
We thought https://builder.r-hub.io would be ideal for this but apparently
r.hub and the CRAN build are differenent? It would seem ideal to set-up r-hub
identically to the CRAN check machine… Is that possible?
Q2: Can someone (Simon?) clarify here what the CRAN mac build system is?
1. For Clang one uses
located at here http://r.research.att.com/libs
2. For Fortran one uses OS X El Capitan (10.11): download gfortran
https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/GFortranBinaries#MacOS (even if one if running 10.12
or 10.13, right?)
3. Make file. Is this the make file being used for CRAN check?
Many thanks if it is possible to clarify building packages to mirror CRAN check
PS: It would be great to have an Apple installer package for Clang… Perhaps
getting installer packages for the build environment would be a good project
for https://builder.r-hub.io ? (they are seeking <$10k projects with wide
benefit, and I would have thought that keeping up an apple pkg for building R
would fit that bill perfectly!!
