imguR: Imgur API Client Package for R
imguR is an R package, initated by Aaron Statham, that binds the imguR API to R, thus enabling the uploading and management of images on imguR. It might be particularly useful for web-based R projects and knitr documents written in R markdown.
meme: Meme Generation in R
meme is an R package that helps users generate internet memes from template images. It's just for fun.
rite: The Right Editor to Write R
A simple, powerful, multi-platform script editor for R, built with tcl/tk, rite provides features typically found in standalone editors and IDEs (e.g., syntax highlighting, command completion, shortcut keys, find and go-to-line commands, one-click access to documentation, etc.) and a helpful color-coded output "sink". It also creates an easy workflow for reproducible research through integration with the knitr package.
sparktex: Generate LaTeX sparklines in R
sparktex is an R companion to the LaTeX sparklines package (by Andreas Loeffler and Dan Luecking), which produces Edward Tufte-inspired sparklines and sparkspikes (in-text histograms) natively in LaTeX.
UNF: Tools for creating universal numeric fingerprints for data
UNF is an R package for generating variable- and dataset-level universal numeric fingerprint signatures to uniquely identify data. UNF signatures provide a way to uniquely and persistently identify (a version of) a dataset. The UNF algorithm was created by Micah Altman and was updated to version 5 of the UNF algorithm in the current package, which I maintain. The UNF package also provides UNF-based functions to identify discrepancies between dataframes and works well with the dvn package, listed above, for comparing Dataverse-stored datasets against local copies.
usbroadband: Data for the U.S. National Broadband Map
usbroadband is an R client library for the various APIs underlying the United States National Broadband Map, an open government initiative of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration (U.S. Department of Commerce) and Federal Communications Commission.

LaTeX: A .bst (bibliography style file for LaTeX) that formats according to the APSA/Political Science style guide. I had trouble finding a .bst that correctly formatted citations, so I adapted one to do it. (I use the natbib package to produce parentheticals.)
- LaTeX: A .tex file including some simple macros (and examples thereof) for generating uniform and Normally distributed random variables, displaying those values in various ways, and for including random graphics or .tex files. (Example .tex uses the following files: a.tex, b.tex, 0.tex, 1.tex, 2.tex, A.png, B.png, 0.png, 1.png, 2.png)
