targets: Dynamic Function-Oriented Make-Like Declarative Pipelines for RSource:
A pipeline toolkit for Statistics and data science in R,
targets package brings function-oriented programming to
Make-like declarative pipelines.
targets orchestrates a pipeline
as a graph of dependencies,
skips steps that are already up to date, runs the necessary
computations with optional parallel workers, abstracts files as
R objects, and provides tangible evidence that the results are
reproducible given the underlying code and data.
