Bioconductor has a rich ecosystem of metadata around packages, usage, and build status. This package is a simple collection of functions to access that metadata from R in a tidy data format. The goal is to expose metadata for data mining and value-added functionality such as package searching, text mining, and analytics on packages.
Functionality includes access to computable versions of:
- Download statistics
- Detailed package information
- Package dependendencies (and reverse dependencies)
- Package BiocViews categories
- Build reports
- Vignettes (including examples of text mining)
