    abstract = {The git2rdata package is an R package for writing and
      reading dataframes as plain text files. A metadata file stores
      important information. 1) Storing metadata allows to maintain the
      classes of variables. By default, git2rdata optimizes the data
      for file storage. The optimization is most effective on data
      containing factors. The optimization makes the data less human
      readable. The user can turn this off when they prefer a human
      readable format over smaller files. Details on the implementation
      are available in vignette("plain_text", package = "git2rdata").
      2) Storing metadata also allows smaller row based diffs between
      two consecutive commits. This is a useful feature when storing
      data as plain text files under version control. Details on this
      part of the implementation are available in
      vignette("version_control", package = "git2rdata"). Although we
      envisioned git2rdata with a git workflow in mind, you can use it
      in combination with other version control systems like subversion
      or mercurial. 3) git2rdata is a useful tool in a reproducible and
      traceable workflow. vignette("workflow", package = "git2rdata")
      gives a toy example. 4) vignette("efficiency", package =
      "git2rdata") provides some insight into the efficiency of file
      storage, git repository size and speed for writing and reading.},
