Troubleshooting

We used the latest versions of dependencies for this library, so please update your R environment before installation.

However, if you encounter any problems, try the following:

  1. Up-to-date R language environment
  2. Installing specific dependent libraries versions
    • magrittr

      install.packages("magrittr", version='1.5') 
    • shiny

      install.packages("shiny", version='0.14.2.9001')
  3. Missing semanticui dependency - one of our examples uses one of our others libraries, so please install it as well, when running that example. Repository: semanticui
