cran version cran downloads Build Status

We are excited to announce the stable release of version 1.0 of pavo; the comprehensive R package for handling and analysing colour data. This release includes a suite of new modelling and visualisation tools in a more flexible framework, along with a number of minor improvements. Take a look at the introductory vignette for an outline of the changes, which is also accessible within R through a call to browseVignettes('pavo').

We’re always happy to receive feedback and suggestions, so feel free to join pavo’s gitter page (public chat room) if you need help or if you’d like to keep an eye on announcements. If you have a bug to report, we’d appreciate it if you could also include a reproducible example when possible.

Stable release: 1.1.0 (06/05/2017)

Installation: The current stable version of pavo is available on CRAN, and can simply be installed using install.packages('pavo') within R. The bleeding-edge version is on github, and is most easily installed with Hadley Wickham’s devtools package, by running devtools::install_github('rmaia/pavo').
