When I attempt to write a parquet file using lz4, zstd, or brotli compression using R arrow 0.15.0, I am unable to do so due to the codec support not being built (example below).
I believe that the error is generated through https://github.com/apache/arrow/blob/master/cpp/src/arrow/util/compression.cc#L124-L145, but I am not sure how to call
in R to enable the ARROW_WITH_ZSTD/LZ4/BROTLI flags, or whether I should be doing installing zstd separately from arrow and then doing something pre- or post-install to link zstd with arrow. From https://github.com/apache/arrow/issues/1209, it appears that zstd support has been added to arrow and parquet in general, and the R package readme (https://github.com/apache/arrow/tree/master/r) notes "On macOS and Windows, installing a binary package from CRAN will handle Arrow's C++ dependencies for you", but I get the sense that does not apply to zstd.
Is there guidance as to how to enable zstd and other compression codecs prior to or after downloading the R arrow package? Could this be added to the R documentation somewhere for future reference?
