We have two new packages on CRAN, both of which went through our review process (see links below).
- A new package (version
textreusefrom Lincoln Mullen is on CRAN. This package is an R client for measuring similarity among documents and detecting passages which have been reused. There’s a variety of vignettes, from an introduction to the package to Minhash and locality-sensitive hashing. Repository on GitHub. Link to review.
- Another new package (first version
stplanris on CRAN. Data access and processing tools for transport planning, including origin-destination analysis, route allocation and modelling travel patterns. See the vignette for an introduction to the package. Repository on GitHub. Link to review.
- We are working on more cheat sheets, for
rgbif, and more. We’ll have drafts of these soon, so let us know if you have any feedback on those in the works, or if you want a cheat sheet we don’t have yet at ropensci/cheatsheets.
rOpenSci in the news
- gender (by our community member Lincoln Mullen) was discussed in a blog post by the website Voxxed: https://www.voxxed.com/blog/2015/11/how-packages-make-r-complete/
A new R package uses an rOpenSci package:
- taxize is a dependency in a newish R package MonoPhy for exploring monophyly in a taxonomic group, and data for the monophy tutorial are based on a (pay-walled) paper from the author.
A few recent papers cite rOpenSci software:
- Brian O’Meara et al. have a paper titled Evolutionary models for the retention of adult–adult social play in primates: The roles of diet and other factors associated with resource acquisition in which they use and cite taxize 1
- Dellinger et al. have a paper titled Niche dynamics of alien species do not differ among sexual and apomictic flowering plants in which they use and cite rgbif 2
