Contributions are always welcome. See the cloudyr style guide for guidance on package development, structure, and coding style. Pull requests via GitHub are the preferred way to contribute code and documentation. Ideas, brainstorming, and general discussion are welcome as issues on project-specific repositories or in cloudyr’s gitter chatroom. If you would like to contribute a new package, have a look at the contributing page.

Installation Instructions

As they are released, all packages are hosted in a drat repository on this website (specifically: and versions are updated daily and are periodically released to CRAN. This means you can install and upgrade cloudyr packages quite simply directly from R:

if (!require("drat")) {
drat::addRepo("cloudyr", "")

To make this even easier, you can add drat::addRepo("cloudyr") to your .Rprofile or file, so that the cloudyr repository is available every time you open R.

Installation using devtools

You can also install packages using ghit::install_github() or devtools::install_github(). Note, however, that all stable versions of packages are automatically added to the cloudyr drat, so you can always retrieve a stable version using the above workflow. To obtain a potentially unstable version, use:

if (!require("devtools")) {
