RStudio addins provide a graphical interface for performing common tasks. After installing the
SpaDES.addins package, go to the Addins menu in the RStudio IDE to see the list of available addins provided by this package.
You can assign keybord shortcuts to any of these addins if you wish. See https://rstudio.github.io/rstudioaddins/#running-addins.
We recommend using a single local directory for your
SpaDES modules. Thus, only a single module directory is specified when using these addins.
The simplest way to get started on developing a
SpaDES module, is to start from an exsiting module. Anytime you wish to modify an existing module, we suggest working from a copy, rather than modifying the existing module directly. To copy an existing module, simply invoke the SpaDES: copy module addin from the RStudio Addins menu.

More advanced users planning on contributing code to the
SpaDES ecosystem of packages, can make use of additional package development tools.
