RcppTOML brings TOML to R. TOML is a file format that is most suitable for configurations, as it is meant to be edited by humans but read by computers. It emphasizes strong readability for humans while at the same time supporting strong typing as well as immediate and clear error reports. On small typos you get parse errors, rather than silently corrupted garbage. Much preferable to any and all of XML, JSON or YAML — though sadly these may be too ubiquitous now. TOML is making good inroads with newer and more flexible projects such as the Hugo static blog compiler, or the Cargo system of Crates (aka “packages”) for the Rust language.
