Dear bioC,

How can I use a github (not CRAN) dependency in bioconductor package?

I added in DESCRIPTION

Remotes:
    github::vnijs/MathJaxR (>= 0.11)

 

but does not work.

Karim

Thanks

Questions about developing bioconductor packages should be posted to the bioc-devel list.

But the answer is, you can't. All dependencies must be available in CRAN or Bioconductor. 

I have not seen the Remotes field in a DESCRIPTION file before and it is not discussed in Writing R Extensions, therefore I assume it is not supported.

BTW, it looks like the Remotes field is a devtools thing. But biocLite() and install.packages() do not know about it.

No need to post to bioc-devel unless you have further questions about this.
