Ellis Hughes and I have been working through our series on writing your own R packages with custom functions. Today, we discuss how to go about setting up Vignettes for your R package. Vignettes are a great way for R package authors to offer suggestions about how they intend the package functions to work in order to build more comprehensive analysis. This is different than the simple examples used on the help pages (which we talked about last week) because a Vignette is usually a more full scale application from data loading to visualization to analysis. Additionally, Vignettes are written in RMarkdown, which allow the author to provide more more written text and explanations.
