# Package that is similar to R's caret?

Recently I stumbled upon a R package that works similar like caret, but I can't remember what it's name was and I can't find it. It seemed to be less well known, but at least as extensive. Someone able to help?

Edit: I search for this other package to widen my horizon. There is no specific other reason. This question is specific however, since I am not looking for a general recommendation, but I am looking for this specific package I have in mind. I will recognize the package once I read its functions and descriptions. I had searched for a couple of hours myself and did not find it by searching for "package similar to caret". That is why I need help.

• @Dawny33: I would love to know what the reason is. That is something I really hate about SE: Downvotes and closes without good reason. This is not about a recommendation. – Make42 Apr 14 '16 at 12:23
• I understand that it is frustrating. But, this qn is a recommendation, as it does not have necessary details. It isn't clear why would you want another package similar to caret when there's caret? – Dawny33 Apr 14 '16 at 12:35
• @Dawny33: I edited my qn accordingly ;-). Giving an answer and being helpful wasn't actually that hard as it seems... – Make42 Apr 14 '16 at 12:42

• @Make42 Caught you asking for recommendations again :P. Btw, I would vote for caret just due to the number of contributors and the number of users using the package. I haven't used it personally, however, MLR seems to be boasting more functionalities than caret. – Dawny33 Apr 14 '16 at 12:51
