glue

cran
97th

Percentile

An implementation of interpreted string literals, inspired by Python's Literal String Interpolation <https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0498/> and Docstrings <https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0257/> and Julia's Triple-Quoted String Literals <https://docs.julialang.org/en/stable/manual/strings/#triple-quoted-string-literals>.

withr

cran
96th

Percentile

A set of functions to run code 'with' safely and temporarily modified global state. Many of these functions were originally a part of the 'devtools' package, this provides a simple package with limited dependencies to provide access to these functions.

memoise

cran
96th

Percentile

Cache the results of a function so that when you call it again with the same arguments it returns the pre-computed value.

rex

cran
89th

Percentile

A friendly interface for the construction of regular expressions.

covr

cran
89th

Percentile

Track and report code coverage for your package and (optionally) upload the results to a coverage service like 'Codecov' <http://codecov.io> or 'Coveralls' <http://coveralls.io>. Code coverage is a measure of the amount of code being exercised by a set of tests. It is an indirect measure of test quality and completeness. This package is compatible with any testing methodology or framework and tracks coverage of both R code and compiled C/C++/FORTRAN code.

lintr

cran
83th

Percentile

Checks adherence to a given style, syntax errors and possible semantic issues. Supports on the fly checking of R code edited with 'RStudio IDE', 'Emacs', 'Vim', 'Sublime Text' and 'Atom'.

gmailr

cran
74th

Percentile

An interface to the Gmail RESTful API. Allows access to your Gmail messages, threads, drafts and labels.

A framework to create Bootstrap <http://getbootstrap.com/> HTML reports from 'knitr' 'rmarkdown'.

types

cran

Provides a simple type annotation for R that is usable in scripts, in the R console and in packages. It is intended as a convention to allow other packages to use the type information to provide error checking, automatic documentation or optimizations.

primerTree

cran

Identifies potential target sequences for a given set of primers and generates taxonomically annotated phylogenetic trees with the predicted amplification products.

autoinst

github

Automatically install packages when they are missing.

available

github

Check if a package name is available to use.

fstrings

github

An implementation of Interpreted String Literals (f-strings) for R.

lookup

github

Provides a simple interface to lookup and print R function definitions, including C and C++ compiled code from .Call, .C, .Internal and .External calls. Also lookup of S3 and S4 generics, including a simple dialog to print any or all of the loaded methods for the generic.

knitr

cran
97th

Percentile

Provides a general-purpose tool for dynamic report generation in R using Literate Programming techniques.

markdown

cran
97th

Percentile

Provides R bindings to the 'Sundown' 'Markdown' rendering library (https://github.com/vmg/sundown). 'Markdown' is a plain-text formatting syntax that can be converted to 'XHTML' or other formats. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown for more information about 'Markdown'.

pacman

cran
78th

Percentile

Tools to more conveniently perform tasks associated with add-on packages. pacman conveniently wraps library and package related functions and names them in an intuitive and consistent fashion. It seeks to combine functionality from lower level functions which can speed up workflow.

remotes

cran
25th

Percentile

Download and install R packages stored in 'GitHub', 'BitBucket', or plain 'subversion' or 'git' repositories. This package is a lightweight replacement of the 'install_*' functions in 'devtools'. Indeed most of the code was copied over from 'devtools'.

Convenient functions for moving files, deleting directories, and a variety of string operations that facilitate manipulating file names and extracting information from strings.

affxparser

bioconductor

Package for parsing Affymetrix files (CDF, CEL, CHP, BPMAP, BAR). It provides methods for fast and memory efficient parsing of Affymetrix files using the Affymetrix' Fusion SDK. Both ASCII- and binary-based files are supported. Currently, there are methods for reading chip definition file (CDF) and a cell intensity file (CEL). These files can be read either in full or in part. For example, probe signals from a few probesets can be extracted very quickly from a set of CEL files into a convenient list structure.

BiocContributions

bioconductor

A set of tools for cleaning up, post-processing, adding packages to the repository, and for emailing people etc.

argufy

github

Declare your functions with argument checks, and 'argufy' will generate and add the checking code for you.

SummarizedExperiment

bioconductor

The SummarizedExperiment container contains one or more assays, each represented by a matrix-like object of numeric or other mode. The rows typically represent genomic ranges of interest and the columns represent samples.
