CornerstoneR package provides generic R scripts which enable you to use existing R routines in Cornerstone.
The desktop application Cornerstone is a data analysis software provided by camLine that empowers engineering teams to find solutions even faster. The engineers incorporate intensified hands-on statistics into their projects. They benefit from an intuitive and uniquely designed graphical Workmap concept: you design experiments (DoE) and explore data, analyze dependencies, and find answers you can act upon, immediately, interactively, and without any programming.
While Cornerstone’s interface to the statistical programming language R has been available since version 6.0, the latest interface with R is even much more efficient. Cornerstone release 7.1.1 allows you to integrate user defined R packages directly into the standard Cornerstone GUI. Your engineering team stays in Cornerstone’s graphical working environment and can apply R routines, immediately and without the need to deal with programming code.
Learn how to use R packages in Cornerstone 7.1.1 on camLineTV YouTube channel (available in German).

For the development version from GitLab we use remotes. Install the development version by copying and executing the following two commands in the R console.
install.packages("remotes") remotes::install_gitlab("camLine/CornerstoneR", dependencies = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))
Sometimes it is necessary to install certain versions, for example from a specific branch. To install a certain branch, commit, or tag, append the corresponding
name after an
@ to the repository name:
remotes::install_gitlab("camLine/CornerstoneR@name", dependencies = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual"))
To update the development version, first close ‘Cornerstone’ and ‘R’. Afterwards open ‘R’ and run the installation command again.
