The Stan source files for the package should be stored in:

  • inst/stan/any_subfolder for files to be included via the #include "/my_subfolder/mylib.stan" directive.

  • inst/stan/any_subfolder for a license.stan file.

  • inst/include for the stan_meta_header.hpp file, to be used for directly interacting with the Stan C++ libraries.
