Wednesday, November 14, 1:30-2:30pm, MRBIII Room 1220

R packages are an ideal way to package and distribute R code and data for re-use by others. RStudio includes a variety of tools that make developing R packages easier and more productive, including:

  • Build pane with package development commands and a view of build output and errors

  • Build and Reload command that rebuilds the package and reloads it in a fresh R session

  • R documentation tools including previewing, spell-checking, and Roxygen aware editing.

  • Integration with devtools package development functions

  • Support for Rcpp including syntax highlighting for C/C++ and gcc error navigation

Here are some slides and links to get you started:
