dispRity is a R modular package for measuring disparity from multidimensional matrices.

Check out the paper associated with this package.

Check out the presentation or the video of some of the package's novel features.

Installing dispRity

if(!require(devtools)) install.packages("devtools")
library(devtools)
install_github("TGuillerme/dispRity", ref = "release")
library(dispRity)

The following installs the latest release of dispRity (see patch notes below). For the piping hot development version (not recommended), replace the ref = "release" option with ref = "master". If you're using the master branch, see the patch notes for the latest developments.

The package is available in the CRAN Task Views in Phylogenetics.

Vignettes and manuals

A detailed vignette is available online or as a pdf:

Otherwise, each functions has a detailed associated manual with examples in R (?which.function).

Additionally, you can learn more about the structure of dispRity objects here.

Latest patch notes

  • 2018/03/20 - v1.1.0 got CRAN

    • CRAN release 1 with the additional Claddis.ordination function
    • Added default Cailliez correction to Claddis.ordination function (with add = TRUE)
    • Improved test coverage
    • Registered C symbols properly
    • Improved S3 methods
    • Changed name: scale.dispRity is now rescale.dispRity
    • Changed name: merge.subsets is now combine.subsets
    • Changed name: time.subsets is now chrono.subsets - time.subsets can still be called as an alias of for the same function

Previous patch notes and notes for the next version can be seen here.
