ThinkToStartR package

***ALPHA***

I just started to work on my new package for this blog. This R package will include the code of all my tutorials and will make it accessible with easy function calls.

Install

To install the ALPHA version of the package open up R and use:


require(devtools) #install if necessary (install.packages("devtools")

dev_mode(on=T)

install_github("ThinkToStartR",username="JulianHill",subdir="ThinkToStartR")

Usage

In this first ALPHA version the package just includes some functions.

You can call the functions with the ThinkToStart function:


ThinkToStart(FUNCTIONNAME, ... additional parameters)

Twitter Sentiments Wordcloud:


library(ThinkToStart)
ThinkToStart("TwitterAuth",api_key="yourAPIKEY",api_secret="yourAPISECRET")

Now you can create a sentiment cloud with:


ThinkToStart("SentimentCloud","iphone",30,"YOUR DATUMBOX API KEY")

Foursquare Checkin Map:


token <-ThinkToStart("Foursquare_auth",app_name="R_Test",app_id="XXX",app_secret="XXX")

map <- ThinkToStart("Foursquare_map",token)

  3. I am having problems installing your package.

    When I run the ‘install_github(“ThinkToStartR”,username=”JulianHill”)’ command I get the following output:
    Installing github repo ThinkToStartR/master from JulianHill

    I am running it in RStudio on a Mac if that helps.
