I’ve just released two new packages for R: log4r and SortableHTMLTables. log4r is a minimal logging utility for R that’s inspired by the log4j family of logging tools. It has substantially fewer features than other logging tools for R, but it’s hopefully easier to use. SortableHTMLTables uses brew and the jQuery Tablesorter plugin to provide a function that dumps a data frame out to an HTML document containing a sortable table. You can see an example of the output here. Both packages were submitted to CRAN today and should reach the mirrors over the next few days.
