5.4 pkgdown

The pkgdown package (Wickham and Hesselberth (2020), https://github.com/hadley/pkgdown) can help you quickly turn the R documentation of an R package (including help pages and vignettes) into a website. It is independent of blogdown and solves a specific problem. It is not a general-purpose website generator. We want to mention it in this book because it is very easy to use, and also highly useful. You can find the instructions on its website or in its GitHub repository.
