Here is a list of other, smaller or sillier software that I’ve worked on…
gltps: R code to run Geodesic Low-rank Thin Plate Spline (GLTPS) models a la Wang, H. and Ranalli, M.G. (2007). Low-rank smoothing splines on complicated domains. Biometrics 63(1), 209–217.
vis.concurvity: visualise concurvity between GAM terms.
beyonce: set of colour palettes for R based on the Beyoncé palettes provided at beyoncepalettes.tumblr.com.
wiggly: animation to visualise derivatives, 2nd derivatives and hence GAM penalties
watchr: an small R script that checks if a (R markdown) file has changed, then
horse: an R library for taking people’s tweets, generating a 1st order Markov chain and then using this to generate text that looks like their tweets. A minimal example can be found here.
RXMPP: an R library for communicating via the XMPP protocol (using the
wocky library). This is useful if you want to get R to tell you your simulations have finished via Google Talk.
fw2dot: quick hack to get the
foodweb output into a format compatible with GraphViz. This allows you to nicely plot which functions call each other in an R package.
rphylopic: added support to use base graphics for this package (which allows one to add silhouettes of animals to R plots).
stegasaur: added functionality to hide the code that generated a plot in the plot itself to this package (which implements steganography in R).
staRtrek: an R library for accessing information about the TV series Star Trek. Joint work with internetfriends from Twitter.
