How to keep same environment setting among different compter/platform?

Dear All,

I have performed a great analysis on a HPC cluster platform. I can use sessionInfo() to record all the package version and settings. Now I need to do same work in another platform AWS-clound. Is there any way to easily set as same environment as HPC? I need to keep same setting before the R-version matters for my results.

Conda ? YAML?

If you still have access to the original environment this would be the best way
Project Environments • renv (
if you don't have access, it probably still is the best way, but more headaches/manual labour for you.

Awesome! Thank you, I think renv package is exactly what I need!! @nirgrahamuk

Any ideas how renv will conflict with conda? or is there any suggestion to avoid conflict since I also use Conda to manage some R-packages. Thanks @nirgrahamuk
