meow: the most anticipated R package of 2015

In preparing a presentation on developing R packages using RStudio for the Victoria R Users Meetup Group this month, organizer Kiri Whan and I put together a very simple demo R package.

UPDATE 2015/02/09: I didn’t notice the conflict with the package name; thanks Scott Chamberlain for pointing it out. I’ve renamed the package to meow and updated the links below.

From the README at

meow: Get random pictures of cats.

This package doesn’t do much, but it’s adorable:

Use meow() to fetch a random cat photo from plot it in yor R session. Meow!
