Finding specific modules and sub-modules

How to find individual readyforwhatsnext modules and sub-modules.

This below section renders a vignette article from the ready4 library. You can use the following links to:

Motivation

When considering whether to use model modules, model developers and users will often want to see examples of each module’s application The ready4 package includes tools to allow a modelling project’s maintainers to perform automated searches for vignette examples of model modules and to output tabular summaries of these modules that are suitable for inclusion on documentation website pages.

Implementation

Details of how to search for themed collections of modules is described in another article. A table itemising individual model modules and sub-modules authored with ready4 can be generated using make_modules_tb. This function scrapes relevant data from the websites of module libraries that have been developed within a specified project’s GitHub organisation and may take a couple of minutes to execute. In this example, we are going to examine modules from a youth mental health model.

modules_tb <-  make_modules_tb(gh_repo_1L_chr = "ready4-dev/ready4")

A slightly quicker method to achieve a similar result is to use the get_modules_tb function. This function retrieves an archived version (and therefore potentially less up to date) of the modules summary table.

# Not run
# modules_tb <- get_modules_tb(gh_repo_1L_chr = "ready4-dev/ready4")

The modules_tb object itemises both ready4 modules (which always use R’s “S4” class type) and sub-modules (“S3” class type). To display a HTML summary of just ready4 modules, you can use the print_modules function.

print_modules(modules_tb, what_1L_chr = "S4")
