  1. For Mac users, if you can not install the Rattle successfully. You may try those steps.
    1. upgrade your MAC operating system to High Sierra.
    2. install Xcode which can be downloaded from App Store.
    3. write commands in your Terminal.

    MyComputer$ xcode-select -p

    ### If you see above line, you have xcode command line tools installed.
    ### If you don’t see that output, execute the command below:

    MyComputer$ xcode-select –install

    ### Then, execute the command below:

    MyComputer$ export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH

    MyComputer$ sudo port selfupdate

    MyComputer$ sudo port install pkgconfig

    MyComputer$ sudo port install gtk2 +x11

    MyComputer$ R CMD INSTALL ~/Downloads/RGtk2_2.20.34.tar.gz

    MyComputer$ R CMD INSTALL ~/Downloads/cairoDevice_2.24.tar.gz

    ### The last two command lines depends on your file names and folders, so make sure that the name is consistent with your own files and folders.
