GitHub Actions pkgdown workflow



R packages are a powerful way to share code and data across your individual projects, with colleagues, or even with the broader scientific community. They can also form the basis for a Research Compendium to share data analysis work reproducibly. This workshop will introduce the basics of creating custom R packages for personal use and for sharing!

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • create working R packages with code and data
  • write documentation using roxygen2
  • describe additional package-related tools (e.g. pkgdown, testthat)
