Announcing dtupdate v1.0 – R Package Reporter/Updater for the devtools Universe

August 21, 2014
By

The dtupdate package has functions that attempt to figure out which packages have non-CRAN versions (currently only looks for github ones) and then tries to figure out which ones have updates (i.e. the github version is > local version). It provides an option (not recommended) to auto-update any packages with newer development versions. The reason auto updating is...

Open iTerm (OS X) to a Directory from R

August 20, 2014
By

Sometimes you need to get to a command prompt from R, whether it’s to wrangle git on the command line or do some package work. RStudio provides ways to do this from menus and hotkeys, but on OS X it sticks you in Terminal.app. I’m an iTerm user—and, I really prefer being in that app vs the one...

Do your "data janitor work" like a boss with dplyr

Data “janitor-work” The New York Times recently ran a piece on wrangling and cleaning data: “For Big-Data Scientists, ‘Janitor Work’ Is Key Hurdle to Insights” Whether you call it “janitor-work,” wrangling/munging, cleaning/cleansing/scrubbing, tidying, or something else, the article above is worth a read (even though it implicitly denigrates the important work that your housekeeping staff does). It’s...

The Rfiglet Package For those who don't know what figlet is, it's a command line utility for creating ascii logos.  Rfiglet, therefore, is a set of R bindings for figlet. Works about like you would expect: There are over 150 fonts available, and you can see an example of each one in this Rfiglet package vignette. We can even...

Goodbye static graphs, hello shiny, ggvis, rmarkdown (vs JS solutions)

One of the very exciting and promising developments from RStudio is the rmarkdown/shiny/ggvis combination of tools. We’re on the verge of static graphs and presentations being as old-fashioned as overhead transparencies. I’ve spent the last couple of days giving these tools a test spin. Lots of comments and links to examples appear below. I came

Search for CRAN, GitHub and BioConductor packages at Rdocumentation.org

If you're looking for just the right package to solve your R problem, you could always browse through the list of available packages on CRAN. But with almost 6000 entries, that's not going to be the most efficient process. And even then, many very useful packages aren't found on CRAN: there are more than 800 packages hosted on BioConductor...
