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.
