Percentile

Provides a parallel backend for the %dopar% function using the parallel package.

doSNOW

Percentile

Provides a parallel backend for the %dopar% function using the snow package of Tierney, Rossini, Li, and Sevcikova.

checkpoint

The goal of checkpoint is to solve the problem of package reproducibility in R. Specifically, checkpoint allows you to install packages as they existed on CRAN on a specific snapshot date as if you had a CRAN time machine. To achieve reproducibility, the checkpoint() function installs the packages required or called by your project and scripts to a local library exactly as they existed at the specified point in time. Only those packages are available to your project, thereby avoiding any package updates that came later and may have altered your results. In this way, anyone using checkpoint's checkpoint() can ensure the reproducibility of your scripts or projects at any time. To create the snapshot archives, once a day (at midnight UTC) Microsoft refreshes the Austria CRAN mirror on the "Microsoft R Archived Network" server (<https://mran.microsoft.com/>). Immediately after completion of the rsync mirror process, the process takes a snapshot, thus creating the archive. Snapshot archives exist starting from 2014-09-17.

miniCRAN

cran
92th

Percentile

Makes it possible to create an internally consistent repository consisting of selected packages from CRAN-like repositories. The user specifies a set of desired packages, and 'miniCRAN' recursively reads the dependency tree for these packages, then downloads only this subset. The user can then install packages from this repository directly, rather than from CRAN. This is useful in production settings, e.g. server behind a firewall, or remote locations with slow (or zero) Internet access.

lmSubsets

cran
86th

Percentile

Exact and approximation algorithms for variable-subset selection in ordinary linear regression models. Either compute all submodels with the lowest residual sum of squares, or determine the single-best submodel according to a pre-determined statistical criterion. Hofmann, Gatu, Kontoghiorghes, Colubi, Zeileis (2018, submitted).

onnx

cran
42th

Percentile

R Interface to 'ONNX' - Open Neural Network Exchange <https://onnx.ai/>. 'ONNX' provides an open source format for machine learning models. It defines an extensible computation graph model, as well as definitions of built-in operators and standard data types.
