A suite of utility functions providing functionality commonly
needed for production level projects such as logging, error handling,
cache management and date-time parsing. Functions for date-time parsing and 
formatting require that timezones be specified explicitly, avoiding a common 
source of error when working with environmental time series.


The MazamaCoreUtils package was created by MazamaScience to regularize our work building R packages and R-based web services.

The main goal of this package is to create an internally standardized set of functions that we can use in various systems that are being run operationally. Areas of functionality supported by this package include:

  • python style logging
  • simple error messaging
  • cache management
  • date-time parsing
  • source code linting
