prodigenr (development version) Unreleased

prodigenr 0.6.1 Unreleased

Bug fix

  • DESCRIPTION file actually needs a Package field (#127).

prodigenr 0.6.0 2021-05-12

Major changes

  • Removed abstract and poster templates. Abstracts are so small it isn’t an important addition and (I sense) posters will for a while be created with other software tools (e.g. PowerPoint). Plus there aren’t many mature and well-established poster packages in R at this point in time.
  • Tidied up and trim down all the README files and include pointers to the prodigenr online documentation instead.
  • Removed R script template files. Projects might be too diverse for these template scripts to make sense.
  • Removed several dependencies, including the usethis package.
  • Moved Git initialization setup out into new function called setup_with_git().

prodigenr 0.5.0 2019-07-01

Major change


  • Can now use RStudio’s “New Project” interface for a GUI creation of the project (#109, #111)
  • Setup projects to be “blank slates” (i.e. don’t save .RData) (#105)
  • Add TODO list to project to complete after project creation (#39)


  • Fix NOTES in CRAN results check for unused dependencies (clipr, desc, devtools)


  • Remove deprecated prodigen() function (#107)
  • Replace current interactive messaging with usethis::ui_* functions
  • Reduced opinionated content and moved over to rostools and its manifesto (#108)
  • Removed some dependencies by using functions from usethis
  • Incorporate use_template() instead of custom function (#101)

prodigenr 0.4.0 2018-05-23

New feature

  • Use RMarkdown template files to draft the posters, slides, manuscripts, and abstract (#70, #75). See create_* type commands.
  • New function to setup a general project, but excluding the individual document types such manuscript, slides, etc (#72). prodigen function is deprecated.
  • READMEs in each folder and section to fill out in main README for the project description (#38, #80).

prodigenr 0.3.0 2016-07-29

New features/functionality

  • prodigen() now creates a new project structure that mimics R package development more, specifically devtools (since it is well documented and actively maintained) (#18, #15, #14). The old style has been removed.
  • Added a function to include a STROBE checklist for reporting guidelines (#21).
  • Added function to include an rfigshare script to send to figshare (#19).
  • Added function to include a more complete MIT license (#20).
