An example / template repository for an R compendium
An R Compendium is a research project that borrows some of the features of an R package. This compendium demonstrates the use of a DESCRIPTION file to manage software dependencies, along with
.travis.yml configuration for automated testing that any
.Rmd files in the respository can be successfully built.
