Discover and install useful RStudio addins

Build Status CRAN version saythanks

Copyright 2016 Dean Attali. Licensed under the MIT license.

RStudio addins were released in early 2016 to provide anyone with the ability to add “extensions” to RStudio. This feature has quickly become popular, but discoverability was a problem: there’s just no easy way to know what addins exist.

The addinslist package solves that problem in two ways:

Addins menu
Addins menu

List of addins

If you made a useful RStudio addin, feel free to make a pull request on GitHub to add it to the list.
