In addition to our miner package and our in-development bookdown book, the R/minecraft team from the ROpenSci Unconference had created a bunch of other useful code for interacting with Minecraft from R, which we’re putting into a second package.
I initially called this extra package “miner.extra”. (And I learned some new things about the rules for what characters can be used in R package names.) But then this evening I realized, “Hey, we could call it craft.”
And I used the available package, also developed at last week’s unconference, and verified that indeed craft is available. A bit of indecision about taking such a great name for this secondary package, but after checking with Gergely and Brooke, went ahead with it.
(I was of course tempted towards mineR and cRaft, but I didn’t want to disappoint Hadley.)
(craft currently just contains code that I wrote, ‘cause I was the only one who left dangling scripts that weren’t incorporated into a proper vignette. Functions from the others will follow.)
