This is a project directory generator (
prodigenr) that will
create a project directory structure with template files necessary for
managing and analyzing data for a variety of projects. This allows
for a standardized approach to having a modular research project, while also
taking advantage of existing well-developed and maintained infrastructures and
processes (Rstudio and devtools).
Install via CRAN or using
devtools for the development version:
install.packages('prodigenr') # Development version devtools::install_github('lwjohnst86/prodigenr')
The main function is the
prodigen command. So, for instance, if you
want a manuscript project, type out:
library(prodigenr) prodigen(type = 'manuscript', name = 'cancerToxins', path = '/path/to/new/project')
This then creates a directory tree, with template files for starting
your analysis! The main secondary function is the
command, which lists the available template projects and files (submit
a PR if you want another template included!):

There are several ways of creating projects, each of which has it's pros and cons.
prodigenr tries to use ideas from R packages/
devtools while still being as simple
as possible and be more specific to academic researchers primarily in
biomedical/non-computer science fields. However, it can always improve! I
