A while ago we
onboarded an
exciting package, codemetar
by Carl Boettiger. codemetar is an R specific
information collector and parser for the CodeMeta
project

recognized by CodeMeta
. This means
extracting information from DESCRIPTION but also from e.g. continuous

of codemetar::extract_badges function to explore the diversity of
badges worn by the READMEs of CRAN packages.
