Rethinker is a RethinkDB driver for R. It is currently pretty usable, but mileage may vary; the main thing missing is the support for encryption connections, auth keys and v1.0 wire protocol. All those things boil down to the fact that R has no support for cryptographic primitives nor for wrapping connections into TLS.
The easiest way is to install from CRAN, i.e.,
To build from source, use the standard R build or devtools; for tests, use
devtools::test() (read to the end before doing that).
See wiki for tutorial.
Note that tests will try to spin a throw-away RethinkDB instance in temp with port offset 9876. In some unlikely cases it may interfere with your production DB (when it re-uses port offset 9876 and there is a race condition) or generate a false positive (when RethinkDB fails to start in 5s or some firewall is blocking local traffic, etc.). When RethinkDB is absent or cannot be started, transaction tests will be skipped.
