Not exactly a breeze to get running.

First, try installing devtools. It's a package that allows other packages to be installed from GitHub.

> install.packages("devtools")

It didn't work for me. After Googling around, I found this:

> install.packages('devtools',dependencies=TRUE, repos='')

If that is ok, install keras R package from GitHub:

> devtools::install_github("rstudio/keras")

Then install both the core Keras library as well as the TensorFlow backend.

> library(keras)
> install_keras()

Next, run some test as recommended by

Here's my output after going all the steps.
