Functions for visualizing distributional regression models fitted using the 'gamlss', 'bamlss' or 'betareg' R package. The core of the package consists of a 'shiny' application, where the model results can be interactively explored and visualized.

Infrastructure for estimating probabilistic distributional regression models in a Bayesian framework. The distribution parameters may capture location, scale, shape, etc. and every parameter may depend on complex additive terms (fixed, random, smooth, spatial, etc.) similar to a generalized additive model. The conceptual and computational framework is introduced in Umlauf, Klein, Zeileis (2019) <doi:10.1080/10618600.2017.1407325> and the R package in Umlauf, Klein, Simon, Zeileis (2019) <arXiv:1909.11784>.

A set of distributions which can be used for modelling the response variables in Generalized Additive Models for Location Scale and Shape, Rigby and Stasinopoulos (2005), <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9876.2005.00510.x>. The distributions can be continuous, discrete or mixed distributions. Extra distributions can be created, by transforming, any continuous distribution defined on the real line, to a distribution defined on ranges 0 to infinity or 0 to 1, by using a ''log'' or a ''logit' transformation respectively.

Streamlined data import and export by making assumptions that the user is probably willing to make: 'import()' and 'export()' determine the data structure from the file extension, reasonable defaults are used for data import and export (e.g., 'stringsAsFactors=FALSE'), web-based import is natively supported (including from SSL/HTTPS), compressed files can be read directly without explicit decompression, and fast import packages are used where appropriate. An additional convenience function, 'convert()', provides a simple method for converting between file types.
