minimal R version CRAN_Status_Badge packageversion



This package was inspired by the badgerbadger package that checks for badges of travis, code coverage open issues, dependencies and licenses. It would be nice to have a simple function that adds these things to a readme.rmd file in R. It will save you typing and searching for the exact markdown on the websites of travis, codecov, etc.

This package does now place the following badges /shields:

Possible future badges


I like to use the following workflow:

You will probably call badgecreatr only once, somewhere during your work.

If you call badgecreatr again when you already have badges, they will be recognized. [(see CHANGELOG)]](


For now you will have to install using devtools::install_github("rmhogervorst/badgecreatr") Whenever you have created a readme, use badgeplacer() or don't even load the package I would just call badgecreatr::badgeplacer(githubaccount = "RMHogervorst",githubrepo = "badgecreatr") for this package.

And if I would just start with this package I would make a different status:

badgecreatr::badgeplacer(status = "wip" , githubaccount = "RMHogervorst",githubrepo = "badgecreatr") Which would make this a work in progress status badge.


You will have to supply the github accountname, repo and branch. I'm working to automatically recognize those.

I found the projectstatus and the wonderful projects and wanted to implement that for all my packages. But that took a lot of work. Repetitive work, and I don't like that.

The badgerbadgerbadger project in ruby did all these things automatically. I wanted to do the same thing for R projects. And I did.
