fitzRoy v1.0.0

I’m excited to announce the official v1.0.0 release of fitzRoy has landed on CRAN! Motivation It’s been over 3 years since the first commit of the package and it’s great to finally feel like it’s stable enough for a v1 release.

New fitzRoy functions

The new AFL season, with it’s condensed fixture, is proving challenging for the old little R package fitzRoy. Luckily I’ve added a couple new functions to help! You’ll need the development version of the package. devtools::install_github("jimmyday12/fitzRoy") library(fitzRoy) library(dplyr) Fixture I recently noticed that the get_fixture function was broken. There is unfortunately not a lot I can do with that one. The Footywire website doesn’t provide round in it’s outputs and so I’ve always just calculated this assuming that rounds begin on Thursday/Friday and finish on Sunday/Monday. [Read More]

Monash Tips Package

Hey team! With the amazingness that is the ‘festival of footy’ and 20 days straight of games - spare a thought for us poor modellers as we scramble to update our tips and blogs between rounds that have no distinct gap! I’m working on a few things in fitzRoy that might help but thought I’d share something that I’ve been working on. Orginally it was just going to be some internal code that allowed me to submit my Monash Probabilistic Tipping Comp tips from R when I updated my models. [Read More]
