makeR

An R package for managing document templates and versions

makeR is an R package to help manage R projects (e.g. Sweave reports) where multiple versions are created based upon a single source repository. For example, a monthly report where each versions is identitcal with the exception of easily definable parameters (e.g. date ranges for data extraction, title, etc.). This package is not meant to assist with package development or more complex data analysis projects. For those types of projects, consider devtools or ProjectTemplate, respectively.

To install the latest development version using devtools, type following in R:

	require(devtools)
	install_github('makeR', 'jbryer')

The rbloggers demo provides a tour of the package.

	require(makeR)
	demo('rbloggers')

Development

The makeR package was developing using the devtools package. The following commands provide an easy and efficient approach to package development.

	setwd("~/Project") #Change to your working directory
	document("makeR")
	check_doc("makeR")
	build("makeR")
	install("makeR")
	check("makeR")
	library(makeR)
	ls('package:makeR')
