Hi, I just improved the implementation of the "Packages" tab in Ride to list all available libraries (group, name, version and description) on the classpath with checkboxes to load and unload (detach) a library. I did it by using the ClassGraph project (https://github.com/classgraph/classgraph
) to scan the content of all DESCRIPTION files on the classloader used by the Session. It is quite fast and works fine but I am wondering if there is something in Renjin that I could use instead?
installed.packages() gives me a few more packages compared to (.packages()) but is far from complete. library() on the other hand throws EvalException: attempt to use zero-length variable name. Is there another way?
