I'm trying to install a package from github for R with
Error in curl::curl_fetch_disk(url, x$path, handle = handle) :
Timeout was reached
When I want to download this package it also takes long to get a connection but in the end it works as expected. Another possibility is to download the zip file and then install it.
To install the package after downloading, the following code works:
install.packages("/address/to/zip-package", repos = NULL, type="source")
and write the address of the downloaded package in place of
/address/to/zip-package, or use RStudio and Packages -> Install.
