A Robust, High Performance JSON Parser and Generator for R
A fast JSON parser and generator optimized for statistical data and the web. Started out as a fork of 'RJSONIO', but has been completely rewritten in recent versions. The package offers flexible, robust, high performance tools for working with JSON in R and is particularly powerful for building pipelines and interacting with a web API. The implementation is based on the mapping described in the vignette (Ooms, 2014). In addition to converting JSON data from/to R objects, 'jsonlite' contains functions to stream, validate, and prettify JSON data. The unit tests included with the package verify that all edge cases are encoded and decoded consistently for use with dynamic data in systems and applications.
Database Interface and 'MySQL' Driver for R
A 'DBI' interface to 'MySQL' / 'MariaDB'. The 'RMySQL' package contains an old implementation based on legacy code from S-PLUS which being phased out. A modern 'MySQL' client based on 'Rcpp' is available from the 'RMariaDB' package on 'Github': < https://github.com/rstats-db/RMariaDB>.
A Modern and Flexible Web Client for R
The curl() and curl_download() functions provide highly configurable drop-in replacements for base url() and download.file() with better performance, support for encryption (https, ftps), gzip compression, authentication, and other 'libcurl' goodies. The core of the package implements a framework for performing fully customized requests where data can be processed either in memory, on disk, or streaming via the callback or connection interfaces. Some knowledge of 'libcurl' is recommended; for a more-user-friendly web client see the 'httr' package which builds on this package with http specific tools and logic.
Render SVG Images into PDF, PNG, PostScript, or Bitmap Arrays
Renders vector-based svg images into high-quality custom-size bitmap arrays using 'librsvg2'. The resulting bitmap can be written to e.g. png, jpeg or webp format. In addition, the package can convert images directly to various formats such as pdf or postscript.
Fast and Simple 'MongoDB' Client for R
High-performance 'MongoDB' client based on 'libmongoc' and 'jsonlite'. Includes support for aggregation, indexing, map-reduce, streaming, encryption, enterprise authentication. The online user manual provides an overview of the available methods in the package: < https://jeroen.github.io/mongolite/>.
Extract Text from Microsoft Word Documents
Wraps the 'AntiWord' utility to extract text from Microsoft Word documents. The utility only supports the old 'doc' format, not the new xml based 'docx' format. Use the 'xml2' package to read the latter.
XSLT 1.0 Transformations
An extension for the 'xml2' package to transform XML documents by applying an XSL stylesheet.
Google's Compact Language Detector 2
Bindings to Google's C++ library Compact Language Detector 2 (see < https://github.com/cld2owners/cld2#readme> for more information). Probabilistically detects over 80 languages in plain text or HTML. For mixed-language input it returns the top three detected languages and their approximate proportion of the total classified text bytes (e.g. 80% English and 20% French out of 1000 bytes). There is also a 'cld3' package on CRAN which uses a neural network model instead.
Portable System Utilities
Powerful replacements for base system2 with consistent behavior across platforms. Supports interruption, background tasks, and full control over 'STDOUT' / 'STDERR' binary or text streams. On Unix systems the package also has functions for evaluating expressions inside a temporary fork. Such evaluations have no side effects on the main R process, and support reliable interrupts and timeouts. This provides the basis for a 'sandboxing' mechanism.
