This weekend I decided to create my first R package… it’s here!

https://github.com/NicoleRadziwill/easyMTS

Although I’ve been using R for 15 years, developing a package has been the one thing slightly out of reach for me. Now that I’ve been through the process once, with a package that’s not completely done (but at least has a firm foundation, and is usable to some degree), I can give you some advice:

  • Make sure you know R Markdown before you begin.
  • Some experience with Git and Github will be useful. Lots of experience will be very, very useful.
  • Write the functions that will go into your package into a file that you can source into another R program and use. If your programs work when you run the code this way, you will have averted many problems early.

The process I used to make this happen was:

I hope you enjoy following along with my process, and that it helps you write packages too. If I can do it, so can you!

var s = d.createElement(t); s.type = ‘text/javascript’; s.async = true;
s.src = ‘//cdn.viglink.com/api/vglnk.js’;
var r = d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0]; r.parentNode.insertBefore(s, r);
}(document, ‘script’));
