bfw: Bayesian Framework for Computational Modeling

Derived from the work of Kruschke (2015, <ISBN:9780124058880>), the present package aim to provide a framework for conducting Bayesian analysis using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) sampling utilizing the Just Another Gibbs Sampler ('JAGS', Plummer, 2003, <>). The initial version include several modules for conducting Bayesian equivalents of chi-squared tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA), multiple (hierarchical) regression, softmax regression, and for fitting data (e.g., structural equation modeling).
