excelTransition is designed as a series of ‘training wheels’ functions which allow you to create some outputs similar to those you’d already have created in Excel with a minimum amount of coding and time.

It’s a package designed for you to use and abandon quickly. One of the most costly things about learning a new tool is the time you spend learning to do simple things you can already do in your current tool. excelTransition will help you produce some (very) basic analyses in minimum time, leaving you more time to work on learning R.

It’s ideal for someone at the very beginning of their learning about programming. If you’re an experienced programmer, you may not need these ‘training wheels’ at all.

The package is currently under development and you can view it on Github.
