I was reading Jenny Bryan's slides on naming files. In theory I really like the idea of numbering your files in logical order e.g.
02_plot.R and so on, but in practice how do we deal with the possibility that the order of operations might change, especially when there are a large number of files? E.g. maybe there's a data cleaning step
02_clean-data.R that needs to be added in, so all the filenames downstream of that need to be changed as well.
I imagine there are ways to automate the renaming/renumbering process through the command line. How about for people who aren't as experienced with command line?
