Stable version from the CRAN

The stable version of the package is available on CRAN servers, which means that you can install it with the regular install.packages() function.

If for some reason, the installlation from CRAN fails, you might need to look into alternative methods.

Alternative methods

Development version

If you encounter technical problems with the package that are not described anywhere, you might want to take a look at the development version.

If you wish to install the development version, I recommend a manual installation:
1. Clone the repository to your local hard drive.
2. Open a terminal and navigate to the directory where you cloned. The via directory should be visible from there.
3. Run this line in the terminal

  • If you see an error suggesting that R is not found, you have to add it to your PATH environmental variable.
  • If the R packages that via depend on are not installed, you have to install them manually, or you will get an error.
