Gists is a place to drop in example usage of rOpenSci packages.
Why not GitHub gists? Those are great, but notifications don’t really work, so you have no clue if someone commented on your gist.
It makes sense to do these in this forum because we have all the syntax highlighting, etc. you have on GitHub gists, but we can discuss the code, make improvements, etc.
When you post a gist here, use tags to indicate topics as you like, but also tag each rOpenSci package used in the example. That will make it easy for folks to quickly find examples of usage of specific packages.
