I am currently trying to build an internal package for our lab. This includes creating an internal lookup table from three TSV files I had to manually get. There's really no easy way to get that data so I would like to store that data in the repo, create a script to generate the internal data file in
data_raw/ and then work from there. However, I am a bit confused about where to put these raw data files.
One of my thoughts is to put that in a separate raw/ directory and put the files there and ignore that in
RBuildignore. In that case, I am unsure if I am following best practices by accessing said data in a normal script way.
This is quite confusing for me and I want to build good habits from the start. Any help will be appreciated.
