A new release of what may be my most minor package, dang, is now on CRAN. The dang package regroups a few functions of mine that had no other home as for example lsos() from a StackOverflow question from 2009 (!!) is one, this overbought/oversold price band plotter from an older blog post is another. More recently added were helpers for data.table to xts conversion and a git repo root finder.

Some of these functions (like lsos()) where hanging in my .Rprofile, other just lived in scripts so some years ago I started to collect them in a package, and as of February this is now on CRAN too for reasons that are truly too bizarre to go about. It’s a weak and feeble variant of the old Torvalds line about backups and ftp sites …

As I didn’t blog about the 0.0.10 release, the NEWS entry for both follows:

Changes in version 0.0.11 (2019-10-24)

  • New functions getGitRoot, inGit and isConnected.

  • Improved function as.data.table.xts.

Changes in version 0.0.10 (2019-02-10)

  • Initial CRAN release. See ChangeLog for earlier changes.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. For questions or comments use the issue tracker off the GitHub repo.
