This is package {chameleon}: Build And Highlight Package Documentation With Customized Templates.
You are using version 0.0.1.9000.

Complete documentation in the {pkgdown} site: https://thinkr-open.github.io/chameleon/

Installation

The list of dependencies required to install this package is: attachment, bookdown, cli, crayon, desc, devtools, knitr, magrittr, pkgdown, readr, remotes, rmarkdown, shiny, usethis, utils.

To install the package, you can run the following script

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github(repo = "Thinkr-open/chameleon")

Examples

Build a book from vignettes inside a package

You can use create_book() using your own template basis. By default, it uses {bookdown} site template. You can use it to build your own.

template <- system.file("rstudio/templates/project/resources", package = "bookdown")
create_book(path = "inst/report", clean = TRUE,
            template = template)

Help users find your book with function open_guide_function(). This adds function open_guide() inside your package that will open the userguide (in HTML or PDF) on demand.

open_guide_function(path = "inst/report")

Build a pkgdown site inside a package

You can use build_pkgdown() using your own template basis. By default, it uses the {pkgdown} original template.
To use your own template, it is better to create a R package with all necessary files (See https://github.com/tidyverse/tidytemplate as an example).

You can then define your own _pkgdown.yml file that will call your template when building the site:

template:
  package: mypackagetemplate
chameleon::build_pkgdown(
  lazy = TRUE,
  yml = "/pah/to/your/yaml/_pkgdown.yml",
  favicon = "/path/to/your/favicon.ico",
  move = TRUE
)

Help users find your pkgdown website with function open_pkgdown_function(). This adds function open_pkgdown() inside your package that will open the site on demand. This may make your package not pass warnings in checks, but remember this is for internal or private use. For public use, you can publish your pkgdown site directly online.

chameleon::open_pkgdown_function()

Build a reference page

To award people hard working for open-source, it is always good to cite their work. In order to add an informative page in your Shiny applications for instance, you can create a html or markdown page listing all package dependencies used.

chameleon::create_pkg_biblio_file(to = "html", out.dir = "inst")
# Can be included in a shiny app using 
shiny::includeHTML("bibliography.html")
# OR
chameleon::create_pkg_biblio_file(to = "markdown")
# Can be included in a shiny app using 
shiny::includeMarkdown("bibliography.md")

To describe your package and how to install it

This can be useful to create your Readme for instance or to send the instructions file for your clients to install your package.

path <- system.file("DESCRIPTION", package = "chameleon")
out.dir <- tempdir()
create_pkg_desc_file(path, source = c("archive"), to = "html")
# Use with results="asis" in a Rmd
shiny::includeHTML(file.path(out.dir, "pkg_description.html"))

Create and update a custom README with installation instructions

  • generate_readme() uses {usethis} Readme template for packages and fill the installation instructions.
  • This function can be run anytime during project development as it will only update the description and installation parts
#usethis::use_readme_rmd
chameleon::generate_readme_rmd()
chameleon::generate_readme_rmd(parts = "description")
