Analyse statistics of one R package


pkgstats(path = ".")



Either a path to a local source repository, or a local '.tar.gz' file, containing code for an R package.


List of statistics and data on function call networks (or object relationships in other languages). Includes the following components:

  1. loc: Summary of Lines-of-Code in all package directories

  2. vignettes: Numbers of vignettes and "demo" files

  3. data_stats: Statistics of numbers and sizes of package data files

  4. desc: Summary of contents of 'DESCRIPTION' file

  5. translations: List of translations into other (human) languages (where provides)

  6. objects: A data.frame of all functions in R, and all other objects (functions, classes, structures, global variables, and more) in all other languages

  7. network: A data.frame of object references within and between all languages; in R these are function calls, but may be more abstract in other languages.

  8. external_calls: A data.frame of all calls make to all functions from all other R packages, including base and recommended as well as contributed packages.
