Is it possible to get the R package usage statistics?
That is, does R contain any tools to estimate which packages were
used and how often?
I am going to temporary change the workplace and packing the data
and their processing scripts on my computer in order to continue my
During my work on the current workplace I periodically have had installed
new R packages, have investigated them and used them in my work or did
not used them, depending on their functionality.
Now I am thinking about writing an R script which will automatically
download and install everything I need from the R repository.
So, I need a list of packages I have used in R.
The first solution in my head is to scan all disks for R
scripts and .Rhistory files, extract calls for "library" from them
and save names of loaded packages.
I would appreciate other variants.
