Onboarding

We accept community contributed packages via our onboarding system - a software review system, sorta like scholarly paper review, but way better. We’ll highlight new packages here that have come through this system. A huge thanks to our reviewers, who do a lot of work reviewing (see the blog post on our review system), and the authors of the packages!

If you want to be a reviewer we have a new form you can fill out, and we’ll ping you when there’s a submission that fits in your area of expertise.

The following package was recently submitted to our onboarding process:



On the blog

Onboarding series

We’re doing a series of guest blog posts for packages that have gone through our software review process at ropensci/onboarding.

The 4th post came out last week, by Lukas Lundstrom on his package camsRad - camsRad, satellite-based time series of solar irradiation.

3rd: Claudia Vitolo on her package hddtools - Discover hydrological data using the hddtools R package.

2nd: Maëlle Salmon on her package ropenaq - ropenaq, a breath of fresh air/R.

1st: Sean Hughes on his package plater - From a million nested ifelses to the plater package.

We’ll have more posts in this series coming out soon - keep an eye out.
