Paper Abstract The drake R package (Landau 2018) is a workflow manager and computational engine for data science projects. Its primary objective is to keep results up to date with the underlying code and data. When it runs a project, drake detects any pre-existing output and refreshes the pieces that are outdated or missing. Not every runthrough starts from scratch, and the final answers are reproducible. With a user-friendly R-focused interface, comprehensive documentation, and extensive implicit parallel computing support, drake surpasses the analogous functionality in similar tools such as Make (Stallman 1998), remake (FitzJohn 2017), memoise (Wickham et al. 2017), and knitr (Xie 2017).
