R

Steph Locke shows how to use .Rprofile to make your life easier:

First of all, you need a file called .Rprofile that’s stored in your working directory. Some useful resources about .Rprofiles can be found on .Rprofile CRAN docs and an .Rprofile intro.

Now inside that file, you can add a number of functions that are based on a number of events like loading or closing R. I need a .First function for on load and whatever I produce has to be able to print to the console with cat().

With that in mind, instead of showing details, I chose to show the number of breaches I’m in. You can get HIBPwned from CRAN and use it to query the awesome website HaveIBeenPwned.com.

I’ve seen people do things like this in .bash_profile, but didn’t know about .Rprofile before.
