In our previous article, we described what is R and why you should learn R. In this article, we’ll describe briefly how to **install R** and **RStudio** on Windows, MAC OSX and Linux platforms. **RStudio** is an integrated development environment for R that makes using R easier. It includes a console, code editor and tools for plotting.

To make things simple, we recommend to install first R and then RStudio.

R can be downloaded and installed on Windows, MAC OSX and Linux platforms from the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) webpage (http://cran.r-project.org/).

- After installing R software, install also the RStudio software available at: http://www.rstudio.com/products/RStudio/.

## Install R for windows

- Download the latest version of R, for Windows, from CRAN at : https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/

Double-click on the file you just downloaded to install R

Cick ok –> Next –> Next –> Next …. (no need to change default installation parameters)

## Install Rtools for Windows

Rtools contains tools to build your own packages on Windows, or to build R itself.

- Download Rtools version corresponding to your R version at: https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools/. Use the latest release of Rtools with the latest release of R.

- Double-click on the file you just downloaded to install Rtools (no need to change default installation parameters)

## Install RStudio on Windows

- Download RStudio at : https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/

Download the latest version of R, for MAC OSX, from CRAN at : https://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/

Double-click on the file you just downloaded to install R

Cick ok –> Next –> Next –> Next …. (no need to change default installation parameters)

Download and install the latest version of RStudio for MAC at: https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/

- R can be installed on Ubuntu, using the following Bash script:

sudo apt-get install r-base

- RStudio for Linux is available at https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/

To install the latest version of R for linux, read this: Installing R on Ubuntu

It is relatively simple to install R, but if you need further help you can try the following resources:

- Next chapters
- Running RStudio and setting up your working directory
- R programming basics

This analysis has been performed using **R software** (ver. 3.2.3).
