FaaSr: FaaS (Function as a Service) Package

Allows users to create and deploy the workflow with multiple functions in Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) cloud computing platforms. The 'FaaSr' package makes it simpler for R developers to use FaaS platforms by providing the following functionality: 1) Parsing and validating a JSON-based payload compliant to 'FaaSr' schema supporting multiple FaaS platforms 2) Invoking user functions written in R in a Docker container (derived from rocker), using a list generated from the parser as argument 3) Downloading/uploading of files from/to S3 buckets using simple primitives 4) Logging to files in S3 buckets 5) Triggering downstream actions supporting multiple FaaS platforms 6) Generating FaaS-specific API calls to simplify the registering of a user's workflow with a FaaS platform Supported FaaS platforms: Apache OpenWhisk <https://openwhisk.apache.org/> GitHub Actions <https://github.com/features/actions> Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda <https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/> Supported cloud data storage for persistent storage: Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) <https://aws.amazon.com/s3/>.
