Just a quick note that the Task View we have been working on with others Web Technologies and Services is up on CRAN now. Find it here https://cran.r-project.org/web/views/WebTechnologies.html.
This is the first version - there are definitely changes to come. Changes are being suggested as I write this on Twitter…
The draft version of the task view is on Github here if you want to file an issue.
We use many packages to do stuff with the web like XML, RCurl, httr, RJSONIO, etc., and we create many packages that grab data from the web. So it made a lot of sense to work on this task view. We hope it is a good resource for everyone.
