sims is an R package to generate datasets from R or JAGS code for use in simulation studies. The datasets are returned as an nlists object and/or saved to file as individual .rds files. Parallelization is implemented using the future package. Progress is reported using the progressr package.
You can install the released version of sims from CRAN with:
And the development version from GitHub with:
# install.packages("remotes") ::install_github("poissonconsulting/sims")remotes
sims_simulate() returns the simulated
datasets in the form of an nlists object.
library(sims) set.seed(10) sims_simulate("a <- runif(1)", nsims = 2L) #> $a #>  0.2213763 #> #> an nlists object of 2 nlist objects each with 1 numeric element
save = TRUE then each nlist object is saved
.rds file in
set.seed(10) sims_simulate("a <- runif(1)", nsims = 2L, save = TRUE, path = tempdir(), exists = NA) #>  TRUE sims_data_files(tempdir()) #>  "data0000001.rds" "data0000002.rds" sims_data(tempdir()) #> $a #>  0.2213763 #> #> an nlists object of 2 nlist objects each with 1 numeric element
