I'm pleased to announce that splashr is now on CRAN:

The package is an R interface to the Splash javascript rendering
service. It works in a similar fashion to Selenium but is fear more
geared to web scraping and has quite a bit of power under the hood.

There are three vignettes that should help folks get started using it
(like Selenium it really requires Docker for the best experience) and
there are a few blog posts about it kicking around on the internet.

Many thanks to all (if you're on here) who took it for a spin and
provided suggestions and even more thanks to the CRAN team for a
speedy onboarding.
