pingr is an R package that contains one function,
ping(), with one purpose: To go ping on whatever platform you are on (thanks to the audio package). It is intended to be useful, for example, if you are running a long analysis in the background and want to know when it is ready. It’s also useful if you want to irritate colleagues. You could, for example, use
ping() to get notified when your package updates have finished:
ping() does not only go ping but lets you choose nine different sounds specified by a number (
ping(3)) or a name (
ping("fanfare")). Bonus points if you can identify where sound two to nine comes from!
pingr is currently residing on GitHub and is never going to be on CRAN, instead grab Hadley Wickham’s
devtools and install
pingr directly from GitHub by entering this into an R console:
install.packages("devtools") library(devtools) install_github("pingr", "rasmusab")
