Today badges are widely used in open source software repositories. They have a high recognition value and consequently provide an easy and efficient way to convey up-to-date metadata. Version numbers, download counts, test coverage or container image size are just a few examples. The website Shields.io provides many types of such badges. It also has an API to generate custom ones.
Now imagine similar badges, i.e. succinct, up-to-date information, not for software projects…

This o2r team members Daniel and Edzer had the pleasure to participate in the largest conference of R developers and users, useR!2017 in Brüssels, Belgium.
Daniel presented a new R extension package,
containerit, in the Data reproducibility session.

This post is the draft of the vignette for a new R package by o2r team members Matthias and Daniel. Find the original file in the package repository on GitHub.
Even though R is designed for open and reproducible research, users who
want to share their work with others are facing challenges. Sharing
merely the R script or R Markdown document should warrant
reproducibility, but many analyses rely on additional resources and
specific third party software as well. An R script may…

Thanks to the valuable questions and comments by our external partners, the project tasks were assessed and refocussed. On top of it, we agreed to collaborate even further and sketched first ideas for putting o2r’s prototypes into real-world settings.
