‘archetyper’ initializes data mining and data science projects by generating common workflow components as well as peripheral files needed to support technical best practices.



The easiest way to get archetyper is to install it from CRAN:


To get a bug fix or use a feature from the development version, you can install the development version of ‘archetyper’ from GitHub.

Development Version



A new project can be instantiated using the generate() function.

#> library(archetyper)
#> archetyper::generate("majestic_12")
#> list.files("majestic_12/")
[1] "data_input"        "data_output"       "data_working"      "docs"             
[5] "majestic_12.Rproj" "models"            "R"                 "readme.md"
[9] ".gitignore"

#> list.files("majestic_12/R")
 [1] "0_test.R"      "1_integrate.R" "2_enrich.R"    "3_model.R"     "4_evaluate.R" 
 [6] "5_present.Rmd" "api.R"         "common.R"      "explore.R"     "lint.R"       
[11] "mediator.R"    "utilities.R"

A runnable demo project will be created with the generate_demo().

#> archetyper::generate_demo()
