Example R Pipeline

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
type: kubernetes
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 your can bring your own.
