Another announcement from the Binder team: this morning we released v0.11 of repo2docker !
You can update or install it with:
pip install -U jupyter-repo2docker
A complete list of changes and new features is here.
The feature I am most excited about is that we now automatically install RStudio for you when we detect that you are using R packages in your
environment.yml. This means you can now also use the pre-built packages from conda-forge for your R packages instead of using only
install.R. This will hopefully speed up repository build times as the conda-forge packages are binaries and don’t need compiling from scratch like the CRAN packages. An example repository to get you started with this is https://github.com/betatim/r-conda.
