Command Index to Statistical Rethinking

I am having a great time working through Richard McElreath’s text, Statistical Rethinking: A Bayesian Course with Examples in R and Stan.  The focus is on building, testing, interpreting, and improving  statistical models.  It is absolutely empowering and I have begun to build simple models myself.  However, I have been frustrated as I have done so, by the book’s poor index particularly the sparsity of references to R commands.  A case of “I know there is a way to do it, but now I have to page through the book to find it.”  So I took an hour or so and built an index to all (most) of the R commands Dr. McElreath used and supplied with the Rethinking library.  I just finished.  It is very rough and untried and probably has some omissions.  Anyway it is pasted below in case anyone else might find it useful.
