Development of a example R package (CC266)

March 18, 2024 • PD Schloss • 1 min read

The number and diversity of packages in R is one of its greatest strengths. Developing these packages has always been tricky and fraught with pain. Thankfully, Hadley Wickham and Jenny Bryan have removed a lot of the pain with their book R Packages. We’ll go through the first chapter of their book to develop an example R package before creating our own package in future episodes. We’ll use a number of functions from the devtools, usethis, and testthat packages to develop the example R package.
