R style guideStyle:
This is a big one! follow the tidyverse style guide: https://style.tidyverse.org/
Key things are:
- naming conventions: use underscores, be concise and descriptive
- lines should be max 80 characters wide
Think about it like the difference between the blurb at the top of a recipe (that explains what the dish is all about, its backstory, its history, the subtle nuance etc) and the individual steps themselves.
These look different in R:
- use "#" for comments,
- and " #' " for documentation.
- separate sections using comment blocks "# Section name ========" (80 lines wide)
