pkgKitten 0.2.0: Now with tinytest and new docs


A new release 0.2.0 of pkgKitten just hit on CRAN today, or about eleven months after the previous release.

This release brings support for tinytest by having pkgKitten::kitten() automagically call tinytest::puppy() if the latter package is installed (and the user did not opt out of calling it). So your newly created minimal package now also uses a wonderful yet tiny testing framework. We also added a new documentation site using the previously tweeted-about wrapper for Material for MkDocs I really dig. And last but not least we switched to BSPM-based Continued Integration (which I wrote about yesterday in R4 #30) and fixed one bug regarding the default NAMESPACE file.

Changes in version 0.2.0 (2020-09-27)

  • Continuous Integration uses the updated BSPM-based script on Travis and with GitHub Actions (Dirk in #11 plus earlier commits).

  • A new default NAMESPACE file is now installed (Dirk in #12).

  • A package documentation website was added (Dirk in #13).

  • Call tinytest::puppy if installed and not opted out (Dirk in #14).

More details about the package are at the pkgKitten webpage, the (new) pkgKitten docs site, and the pkgKitten GitHub repo.

Courtesy of my CRANberries site, there is also a diffstat report for this release.

If you like this or other open-source work I do, you can now sponsor me at GitHub. For the first year, GitHub will match your contributions.
