bruceR

BRoadly Useful Convenient and Efficient R functions that BRing Users Concise and Elegant R data analyses.

This package includes easy-to-use functions for (1) basic R programming (e.g., set working directory to the path of currently opened file, import/export data from/to files with any format, print strings with rich formats and colors); (2) multivariate computation (e.g., compute scale sums/means/… with reverse scoring); (3) reliability analyses and factor analyses (PCA, EFA, CFA); (4) descriptive statistics and correlation analyses; (5) t-test, multi-factor analysis of variance (ANOVA), simple-effect analysis, and post-hoc multiple comparison; (6) tidy report of statistical models (to R Console and Microsoft Word); (7) mediation and moderation analyses (PROCESS); and (8) additional toolbox for statistics and graphics.

Installation

## Method 1: Install from CRAN
install.packages("bruceR")
update.packages(ask=FALSE)

## Method 2: Install from GitHub
install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("psychbruce/bruceR", force=TRUE)
update.packages(ask=FALSE)

Tips:

  1. Please restart (close and reopen) RStudio before installation.
  2. If you see a dialog asking “Do you want to install from sources the package which needs compilation?”, it would be better to choose “No” (to save your time).
  3. If you fail to install, please read carefully the warning messages and find out the key R package(s) causing the failure, manually uninstall and reinstall these R package(s), and then retry the main installation.
  4. It would be better to update R to its latest version (v4.0+).
  5. It would be better to download and install Rtools.exe on Windows system.
