packagefinder now with RStudio add-in

A new version 0.3.0 of the packagefinder package is now available on CRAN.

It comes with a new add-in for R Studio that provides a graphical interface to the findPackage() and whatsNew() functions.

Finding packages on CRAN is now easier and more comfortable than ever!

Here are some impressions.


Install the package from CRAN with

install.packages("packagefinder", dependencies = TRUE)

The add-in is installed automatically when you install the package. It can be started from the Addins dropdown menu on the RStudio toolbar. 

See the packagefinder source code on GitHub. Star and fork the repo!

And don't forget to follow me on Twitter to receive more updatates on all my packages and R activities!
