Just released a new R package on GitHub to work with the API for the KoBo Toolbox set of tools for data collection.

Package overview linked below. Code available at https://github.com/mrdwab/koboloadeR
The “koboloadeR” R package is designed to make it easy to retrieve data collected using the KoBo Toolbox or other services using the same API (for example, KoBo Humanitarian Response, Ona). Of these, KoBo Toolbox is quite generous with 1500 submissions per user per month as their limit (and I ...

Just ditched WordPress and moved over to Hugo. Wasn't entirely painless, but wasn't painful either.
WordPress seemed to fizzle on my site and make everything break, so I decided to use this as an opportunity to try something new: Hugo. In simple terms, Hugo is a static site generator that lets you write in markdown and process your markdown files according to templates you use/create.

splitstackshape V1.4.0 for R released!

#package #CRAN
splitstackshape: Stack and Reshape Datasets After Splitting Concatenated Values. Online data collection tools like Google Forms often export multiple-response questions with data concatenated in cells. The concat.split (cSplit) family of functions splits such data into separate cells.

Just put together a new R package last weekend and did a quick writeup on it here. It's used to access the KoBo Toolbox API and download your survey data for use in R. Comes with a Siny interface to view what's available and preview the data too.

Get it from GitHub: https://github.com/mrdwab/koboloadeR

Yes, it seems you're right. I didn't find a public URL setting, but it seems that the "enter data via browser" link url does not require authentication.

This could prove really useful, especially in combination with your package !

Version 1.4.0 of "splitstackshape" is almost ready for CRAN, but BDR rejected it because my titles were too long, had sentence capitalization, and ended with a period :-(

Edit... re-build... re-upload....
