available

available helps you name your R package.

  • Checks for validity
  • Checks not already available on GitHub, CRAN and Bioconductor
  • Searches Urban Dictionary, Wiktionary and Wikipedia for unintended meanings
  • Can suggest possible names based on text in the package title or description.

Installation

You can install available from CRAN with:

install.packages("available")

Or the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("ropenscilabs/available")

Examples

 

Generate new package names from titles

library(available)
suggest(text = "Client for New York Times APIs")
#> [1] "timesr"

suggest(text = "An R Interface to SciDB")
#> [1] "scidbr"
