RStudio addin to search CRAN packages titles and descriptions

About

One of the strengths of R is its vast package ecosystem. Indeed, R packages extend from visualization to bayesian inference and from spatial analyses to pharmacokinetics (https://cran.r-project.org/web/views/). There is probably not an area of quantitative research that isn't represented by at least one R package. At the time of this writing, there are more than 10,000 active CRAN packages. Because of this massive ecosystem, it is important to have tools to search and learn about packages related to your personal R needs. For this reason, we developed an RStudio addin capable of searching available CRAN packages directly within RStudio.

Installation

devtools::install_github("RhoInc/CRANsearcher")

Use

After installation, the add-in will be available in your Rstudio add-in dropdown menu. Simply select "CRANsearcher" from the menu to run the application.
