As a pipeline toolkit for Statistics and data science in R, the targets package brings together function-oriented programming and Make-like declarative pipelines. It analyzes the dependency relationships among the tasks of a workflow, 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 match the underlying code and data. The methodology in this package borrows from GNU Make (2015, ISBN:978-9881443519) and drake by Will Landau (2018, doi: 10.21105/joss.00550 ).
