Installing R language on Mac with Homebrew

First you need to install homebrew a command line package manager.
Then you install gfortran if you don’t have fortran on your computer (this is a dependency of R).
brew install gfortran

brew install gcc

Then to install R you need to tap the homebrew/science repository with this:

brew tap homebrew/science

Then you can install R with:

brew install R

This R will work with R-studio btw.

Note:
Homebrew seems to have removed gfortran from it's list as it's now provided by gcc.
GNU Fortran is now provided as part of GCC, and can be installed with:  brew install gcc
