Help with draft package for unit conversion

I’m working on an R package for converting units, and I thought this community might have some ideas about functionality to add. Currently it has one function, which can convert between 1500 or so different types of units. If anyone’s interested I would really appreciate suggestions for additional functionality, especially units which are commonly used, but not currently supported (it’s very easy to add units at this stage in the process).

Package is here:

I think this is a great idea - but how will this differ from the udunits2 package? It seems fairly robust and comprehensive.

Probably the answer is “is significantly less complete” because I totally didn’t know about the udunits2 package! :smile:


@gshotwell It’s possible you have some functionality udunits2 doesn’t have? I haven’t tried either, so I can’t say from experience. or if you do mostly overlap with udunits2, you could see what udunits2 doesn’t do, or doesn’t do well, and do those things?
