I write about using Unix, R and Programming for Bioinformatics.
I am a System Analyst / Programmer on the Bioconductor core team. Previously I have worked as a Data Scientist at Explorys and as a Bioinformatician in David Serre's Lab; part of the Genomic Medicine Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.
Covr - Test Coverage for R Packages
Track and report code coverage for your package and (optionally)
upload the results to a coverage service like Codecov (http://codecov.io)
or Coveralls (http://coveralls.io). Code coverage is a measure of the
amount of code being exercised by the tests. It is an indirect measure of
test quality. This package is compatible with any testing methodology or
framework and tracks coverage of both R code and compiled C/C++/Fortran code.
