pepr is not yet released, but we are planning to do so shortly. Complete documentation and API for the pepr R package is at code.databio.org/pepr.

pepr is an R package for reading Portable Encapsulated Projects, or PEPs, in R. If you describe your project (configuration and samples) according to this format, you can load all project metadata into R using the pepr package. To test pepr, you can try loading one of the examples PEPs.

Quick start:

Install from GitHub:

Load a project and explore metadata like this:

library('pepr')
p = Project(file = "~/code/microtest/config/microtest_config.yaml")

samples(p)
config(p)
