This package was inspired by the badgerbadger package that checks for badges of travis, code coverage open issues, dependencies and licenses. It would be nice to have a simple function that adds these things to a readme.rmd file in R. It will save you typing and searching for the exact markdown on the websites of travis, codecov, etc.

This package does now place the following badges /shields:

Possible future badges

Other changes initiatilzation on only (without active components)


I like to use the following workflow:

You will probably call badgecreatr only once, somewhere during your work.

If you call badgecreatr again when you already have badges, they will be recognized. [(see NEWS)]](


badgecreatr is on CRAN, install using install.packages("badgecreatr"). But is has a flaw that I have fixed in the dev version.

The newest ‘developmental’ version is installed with devtools::install_github("rmhogervorst/badgecreatr")


You can use this package in multiple ways: add a bunch of badges at once with badgecreatr::badgeplacer(), or you can add the badges with seperate commands, I have named them all badge_* so that autocomplete will make it much easier for you to find the correct one. See the vignette about scenarios of use for more info.

I found the projectstatus and the wonderful projects and wanted to implement that for all my packages. But that took a lot of work. Repetitive work, and I don’t like that.

The badgerbadgerbadger project in ruby did all these things automatically. I wanted to do the same thing for R projects. And I did.
