A consistent, simple and easy to use set of wrappers around the fantastic ‘stringi’ package. All function and argument names (and positions) are consistent, all functions deal with “NA“‘s and zero length vectors in the same way, and the output from one function is easy to feed into the input of another.
With an activated Bioconda channel (see 2. Set up channels), install with:
conda install r-stringr
and update with:
conda update r-stringr
A Docker container is available at https://quay.io/repository/biocontainers/r-stringr.
