The R package lazytype provides addins for inserting code and running code in a different manner, and functions to allow interaction between scripts and between script and rmarkdown file.


The stable version on R CRAN is coming soon.

You can install the development version from Github with:


Keep the PC awake

dont_sign_me_out(hours = 3.5) moves mouse every 5 minutes for a certain time (default 3.5 hours) and print the time elapsed in the console. It is mainly used on public PC where it signs you out for a certain period of inactivity.


LazyScript operations helps with interacting with scripts and rmarkdown files, saves time to copy and paste and provides means to arrange code in a different way.

script_test <- read_script("test.R", library = TRUE)

read_script provides a knitr::read_chunk equivalent in script files.

copy_script_to_rmd("test.R", "test.Rmd", match_chunk = FALSE)
