I’m super-pleased to announce that the Benevolent CRAN Overlords [accepted the metricsgraphics package](http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/metricsgraphics/index.html) into CRAN over the weekend. Now, you no longer need to rely on github/devtools to use [MetricsGraphics.js](http://metricsgraphicsjs.org/) charts from your R scripts. If you’re not familiar with `htmlwidgets`, take a look at [the official site for them](http://www.htmlwidgets.org/).
To make it easier to grok the package, I replicated many of the core [MetricsGraphics examples](http://metricsgraphicsjs.org/examples.htm) in the package [vignette](http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/metricsgraphics/vignettes/introductiontometricsgraphics.html) (which is also below).
I’ll be finishing up support for all of the features of MetricsGraphics library, most importantly `POSIX[cl]t` support for time ranges in the not-too-distant future. You can drop feature requests, questions or problems [over at github](https://github.com/hrbrmstr/metricsgraphics/issues).
