Package rankings, task view rankings and much more: the Rdocumentation poster

August 4, 2014

(This article was first published on DataCamp Blog » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Especially for useR! 2014 we created a poster on, our R documentation aggregator that lets you search packages from CRAN, Bioconductor and GitHub. We received a lot of positive and valuable feedback on it, so we decided to share it again via our blog.

The Rdocumentation poster answers questions such as:

  • What are the 10 most downloaded R packages of all time?
  • Who maintains the most  packages?
  • What are the most popular task views, and how did this ranking change over time?
  • How popular is GitHub in the R community?

So if you  didn’t make it to the useR! 2014 conference, or in case you couldn’t attend the Wednesday evening poster session, you hereby have another chance to have a detailed look at the poster.  Feedback and questions can be send to [email protected].

Feel free to  share it with your network!
