This is the first article for the tadaβ¬’science blog, so before we deep dive into changing the world, let’s have some fun πŸ›.

When I linkedined about the You & R upcoming podcast πŸŽ™οΈ back in December, I shared some code on the survey with potential guests.

… but as I’m getting ready to launch πŸš€ soon - more on that shortly πŸ•₯ πŸ•₯ πŸ•— πŸ•” - I wanted something a bit more fun, so I wrote the pkg_roulette() function this morning and giftwrapped 🎁 it up as the tada package that is on its way to CRAN. Over time, tada will get more tools and will serve as a host for all things tadaβ¬’science.

The pkg_roulette() gives you the time= and n= arguments to control how long the roulette runs and how many packages it shows. It goes increasingly slowly during that time. You can also control the colors it uses with the cols= argument. But you don’t need to, the defaults are fine.

tada is on its way to CRAN, but you don’t need to wait, and you can start using it right now with:


πŸ’‘ You have ideas to improve it, awesome πŸ‘ let’s chat about it on github, on linkedin, on X, on bluesky, on mastodon, on threads or however you usually get in touch.

🦘 don’t go too far, I’ll be back in this blog.
