bayestestR: Understand and Describe Bayesian Models and Posterior Distributions

Provides utilities to describe posterior distributions and Bayesian models. It includes point-estimates such as Maximum A Posteriori (MAP), measures of dispersion (Highest Density Interval - HDI; Kruschke, 2015 <doi:10.1016/C2012-0-00477-2>) and indices used for null-hypothesis testing (such as ROPE percentage and pd).
