Example R Pipeline

Updated 2 years ago by Admin

This guide covers configuring continuous integration pipelines for R projects. If you’re new to Drone please read our Tutorial and build configuration guides first.

Build and Test

In the below example we demonstrate a pipeline that executes R commands to install dependencies and compile code. These commands are executed inside the r-base Docker container, downloaded at runtime from DockerHub.

kind: pipeline
name: default

- name: test
image: r-base
- R -e 'install.packages(c("package1","package2"))'
- R CMD build .

Please note that you can use any Docker image in your pipeline from any Docker registry. You can use the official r-base images, or you can bring your own.

How did we do?
