Contributed R Packages
Below is a list of all packages provided by project Software Development @ ISU.
Important note for package binaries: R-Forge provides these binaries only for the most recent version of R, but not for older versions. In order to successfully install the packages provided on R-Forge, you have to switch to the most recent version of R or, alternatively, install from the package sources (.tar.gz).
A dummy package to ask R-Forge to install packages that I need
|This is a dummy package because R-Forge does not install packages in Suggests for checking purposes.|

A general-purpose package for dynamic report generation in R
|This package provides a general-purpose tool for dynamic report generation in R, which can be used to deal with any type of (plain text) files, including Sweave, HTML, Markdown, reStructuredText and AsciiDoc. The patterns of code chunks and inline R expressions can be customized. R code is evaluated as if it were copied and pasted in an R terminal thanks to the evaluate package (e.g. we do not need to explicitly print() plots from ggplot2 or lattice). R code can be reformatted by the formatR package so that long lines are automatically wrapped, with indent and spaces being added, and comments being preserved. A simple caching mechanism is provided to cache results from computations for the first time and the computations will be skipped the next time. Almost all common graphics devices, including those in base R and add-on packages like Cairo, cairoDevice and tikzDevice, are built-in with this package and it is straightforward to switch between devices without writing any special functions. The width and height as well as alignment of plots in the output document can be specified in chunk options (the size of plots for graphics devices is still supported as usual). Multiple plots can be recorded in a single code chunk, and it is also allowed to rearrange plots to the end of a chunk or just keep the last plot. Warnings, messages and errors are written in the output document by default (can be turned off). Currently LaTeX, HTML, Markdown and reST are supported, and other output formats can be supported by hook functions. The large collection of hooks in this package makes it possible for the user to control almost everything in the R code input and output. Hooks can be used either to format the output or to run a specified R code fragment before or after a code chunk. The language in code chunks is not restricted to R only (there is simple support to Python and Awk, etc). Many features are borrowed from or inspired by Sweave, cacheSweave, pgfSweave, brew and decumar.|

Build status codes
0 - Current: the package is available for download. The corresponding package passed checks on the Linux and Windows platform without ERRORs.
1 - Scheduled for build: the package has been recognized by the build system and provided in the staging area.
2 - Building: the package has been sent to the build machines. It will be built and checked using the latest patched version of R. Note that it is included in a batch of several packages. Thus, this process will take some time to finish.
3 - Failed to build: the package failed to build or did not pass the checks on the Linux and/or Windows platform. It is not made available since it does not meet the policies.
4 - Conflicts: two or more packages of the same name exist. None of them will be built. Maintainers are asked to negotiate further actions.
5 - Offline: the package is not available. The build system may be offline or the package maintainer did not trigger a rebuild (done e.g., via committing to the package repository).
If your package is not shown on this page or not building, then check the build system status report.
