miniCRAN - R package to create internally consistent, mini version of CRAN
At the end of 201, CRAN consisted of more than 6,000 packages, and by 2017 this number doubled to more than 12,000. Many organisations need to maintain a private mirror of CRAN, but with only a subset of packages that are relevant to them. The miniCRAN package makes it possible to create an internally consistent repository consisting of selected packages from CRAN-like repositories. The user specifies a set of desired packages, and miniCRAN recursively reads the dependency tree for these packages, then downloads only this subset.
