The dataMaid package was designed to generate a printable PDF report for a data set. The report includes a statistical summary of a data frame by default, but it’s also possible to add information such as where the data came from. Just be warned that generating PDFs within R can be complicated to set up, especially on Windows, requiring versions of TeX/LaTeX and pandoc to be on your local system. dataMaid’s visualize() function doesn’t require PDF-creating capabilities, though.

The conflicted package will warn you if you try to use a function where there’s more than one function with the same name loaded in your working session. Find out more at https://github.com/r-lib/conflicted.
