@FuSchmu and PeerJ is $99. I believe several institutions are also members of PeerJ (e..g Cal) so you might not have to pay at all.

@ucfagls Right, I realized that. Now taking a diff approach. Frustrating that lazy_data issues don’t show up on devtools::check but on CRAN.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ucfagls

@hadleywickham Used elsewhere too, but for now let’s assume it’s only needed for that fun. What would you suggest?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to hadleywickham

@ucfagls It’s a dataset in data/ and it is lazy loaded.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ucfagls

@hadleywickham wow, Hadley, this package is totally nuts!

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to hadleywickham

@hadleywickham How do you deal with “no visible binding for global variable” when lazy loading a local (documented) dataset?

@jaimedash @hspter @vsbuffalo I used it in grad school to generate data sheets that I could take to the field. So old school.
