Basilisk Installation Utilities






Implements utilities for installation of the basilisk package, primarily for creation of the underlying Conda instance. This allows us to avoid re-writing the same R code in both the configure script (for centrally administered R installations) and in the lazy installation mechanism (for distributed package binaries). It is highly unlikely that developers - or, heaven forbid, end-users! - will need to interact with this package directly; they should be using the basilisk package instead.

package bioconductor-basilisk.utils

(downloads) docker_bioconductor-basilisk.utils



depends bioconductor-dir.expiry:


depends r-base:




You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install bioconductor-basilisk.utils

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-basilisk.utils

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-basilisk.utils

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `bioconductor-basilisk.utils/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
