Introducing pkgKitten: Creating R Packages that purr
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
creates files which the very standard, and very recommended,
R CMD check then complains
about. That is silly. Because each time
R CMD check complains,
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
which also has pointers to the
pkgKitten GitHub repo.
