Anaconda Python needs cleaning every once in a while

Standard

As a user of Anaconda python I have been receiving (Ubuntu) system warnings of low free space in my home directory. Investigating what was causing this I found out that Anaconda python had several versions of each package. The overall size of the pkgs directory was 14+ GB. After cleaning it is about 3GB.

The second largest directory was my mail in Thunderbird.

So it would be wise, especially if you are limited in disk space, to clean Anaconda. The commands I used are as follows:

 
conda clean --all
conda update conda
# just to make sure nothing is broken and
# your environment is updated
source activate <your-environment>
conda update --all
conda clean --all

Rscript to customize the R environment

Standard

A while ago I published a post on how to install some basic packages in R. This post goes further by sharing with you an Rscript (as part of another Ubuntu customization script) to install many popular R packages.

I’ve written the Rscript to be run after a fresh installation of Ubuntu. The Rscript is called by the Ubuntu customization script (yet to be published) and should install some basic and popular R packages.

Below is a Gist. For the repo click here.
