Last week I gave a talk about writing R packages to the Melbourne R user group. I’ve made my slides available online. You can also download the code from the example package I used.
I wanted to show how easy it is to make a basic package, and only a little more effort to add some standard documentation. Modern development tools, in particular the devtools package, have made the whole process efficient and straightforward. If you are used to a workflow where you put shared code in a file such as
functions.R that you then
source() elsewhere, then this talk is for you.
