Blog post


This repo contains the slides for a talk given at a Cabinet Office Coffee & Coding session on 1 November 2019.

The topic

The talk is about how to make an R package easily, with help from the {usethis} package in particular.

You can:

The package

In the session I'll live-build a package called {cabinet} and push it to GitHub. You'll be able to:

  • look at the source code
  • see the package's website, made with {pkgdown}
  • install the package with remotes::install_github("matt-dray/cabinet")
  • run the cabinet_cat() function to find out if a supplied charcter string matches the name of a cat that lives at the Cabinet Office

But don't install it because it's silly.
