A new package pkgKitten is now on CRAN in its infant version 0.1.0. It does only one thing: create R packages that do not suck. Or at least not as much as those created by the (R default) function
package.skeleton()which creates files which the very standard, and very recommended,
R CMD checkthen complains about. That is silly. Because each time
R CMD checkcomplains, something bad happens to a kitten somewhere. So pkgKitten offers a wrapper function
kitten()which creates neat little packages which do not upset
R CMD check. A complete little demo is on the pkgKitten webpage which also has pointers to the pkgKitten GitHub repo.
