pkgreviewr now also provides templates for editors.

library(pkgreviewr)

pkgreview_create("nldoc/nlrx", 
                 review_parent = "~/Documents/workflows/rOpenSci/editorials/",
                 template = "editor",
                 issue_no = 262)

As with initialising a review, the repo is downloaded into review_parent.

It also creates a pkgreviewr project containing editor related templates:

.
├── editor.md
├── index.Rmd
├── nlrx-review.Rproj
└── request.Rmd

index.Rmd

Similar to a review project, index.Rmd is a pre-populated notebook where initial editor checks can be performed

editor.md

This file contains the editor checks response template

request.Rmd

This contains a prepopulated parametarised .Rmd for generating request emails. The parameters it accepts are:

  • person’s name
  • some friendly banter
  • whether JOSS submission is involved
