Upgrade R version in PythonAnywhere

Hi everybody.

I'm wondering if there's a way to upgrade R version installed in pythonanywhere to most recent one (3.4.0).

There are some R packages that can't be installed in the old version installed.

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately we can't upgrade R right now - it will need a new system image. We will be preparing one over the coming months, but I can't give a timeline right now.

Ok, thanks a lot :)

This is also crucial to me. I have tried, and failed, to install an older version of ggplot so I can use ggrepel, which is not compatible with R 3.0.2. Does anyone have a workaround?

R may provide a mechanism for you to install a particular version of R to your home directory. Have a look at their docs and see if that is the case.

Hi, any updates on this. I am stuck too as most of the packages need minimum 3.1 now.

No, no updates.

Hello, is there any update on this issue?

Thanks in advance

Our latest system image has R version 3.2.2 installed.

the latest system image has R version 3.0.2 installed when I type R on the bash. Is it possible to upgrade my R image to your latest version ? thanks.

We can update your system image for you, it may break some of your existing code that worked on older images. You may need to recreate any virtualenvs that you're using and you will need to start new consoles and reload your web apps. Let us know if you'd like to go ahead.

Please go ahead and upgrade my system image !for the latest R version that you have !

thanks- responded over email and upgraded you!

working with a project and tried uploading it in pythonanywhere can the R version 3.2.3 be upgraded to 3.5.1. The R package that i use is supported only in versions > 3.5. Thanks in advance

You are on the newest version available on PythonAnywhere at the moment.

Is it possible to upgrade to R version 4?

We can look into updating R in our next system image. But in the mean time the only thing you can try is to install it yourself in your homedir- we wouldn't be able to offer much tech support for that though.
