R package badgecreatr. Tired of copy and pasting almost identical markdown for badges in every new R package that you create on Github? This package will search your DESCRIPTION file and extract the package name, licence, R-version, and current projectversion and transform that into badges. It will also search for a .travis.yml file and create a ’Travis’ badge, if you use ’Codecov.io’ to check your code coverage after a ’Travis’ build this package will also build a ’Codecov.io’-badge. All the badges will be placed below the top YAML content of your Rmarkdown file (Readme.Rmd). Currently creates badges for Projectstatus (Repostatus.org), licence travis build status, codecov, minimal R version, CRAN status, current version of your package and last change of Readme.Rmd.
