When You install Synapser, You may encounter a similar error:
$ R CMD BUILD . Execution halted ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘synapser’ * removing ‘/private/var/folders/2n/xwh21m9s3sq_mhnkbc6n6z_c0000gn/T/RtmpZ47UPP/Rinstf55478c3f09/synapser’
For this error, You can try first remove $HOME.virtualenvs then run the build command again.
When you build synapser, you may encounter the following error:
$ R CMD BUILD . Error: processing vignette 'upload.Rmd' failed with diagnostics: No credentials provided. --- failed re-building ‘upload.Rmd’
First, create a file named
.synapseConfig in your home
directory. Then add the following lines to the file:
[authentication] username = your_username password = your_password
Now, you should be able to build Synapser.
Synapser is compatible with reticulate and the two packages can be used together in the same R session.
As a workaround, if you wish to communicate with Synapse in an R session that also uses reticulate, you can use the Synapse Python client through reticulate.
