smallsets: The Smallset Timeline Builder

Data practitioners regularly use the 'R' and 'Python' programming languages to prepare data for analyses. Thus, they encode data preprocessing decisions in 'R' and 'Python' scripts. The 'smallsets' package subsequently decodes these decisions into a Smallset Timeline, a visualisation proposed in Lucchesi et al. (2022) <doi:10.1145/3531146.3533175>. A Smallset Timeline is a series of small data snapshots of different preprocessing steps. The 'smallsets' package builds this figure from a user's dataset and 'R'/'Python' preprocessing script, which contains structured comments with snapshot instructions.
