Check the Heaviness of Package Dependencies

It checks the heaviness of the packages that user's package depends on. For each package listed in the "Depends", "Imports" and "Suggests" fields in the DESCRIPTION file, it opens a new R session, loads the package and counts the number of namespaces that are loaded. The summary of the dependencies is visualized by a customized heatmap. Examples of dependency analysis can be found at <>.
