I recently learned about the R package, pkgdown, an R package that provides functions that make it easy to build a website from an R package on Github.

I decided to build a site for my package qtl2pleio. The site is here. It features a documentation page for each function in the package.

Using pkgdown is extremely easy.


pkgdown is used by more than 1300 packages, according to its README file.
