### Pre-built binaries

Install a binary build of pak from our repository on GitHub:

### stable, rc and devel streams

We have three types of binaries available:

• stable corresponds to the latest CRAN release of CRAN.

• rc is a release candidate build, and it is available about 1-2 weeks before a release. Otherwise it is the same as the stable build.

• devel has builds from the development tree. Before release it might be the same as the rc build.

The streams are available under different repository URLs:

stream <- "rc"
install.packages("pak", repos = sprintf("https://r-lib.github.io/p/pak/%s/%s/%s/%s", stream, .Platform$pkgType, R.Version()$os, R.Version()\$arch))
