notes

(character) a description of the dataset (optional)

package_url

(character) a URL for the dataset's source (optional)

version

(string, no longer than 100 characters) - (optional)

state

resources

(list of resource dictionaries) - the dataset's resources, see resource_create() for the format of resource dictionaries (optional)

tags

(list of tag dictionaries) - the dataset's tags, see tag_create() for the format of tag dictionaries (optional)

extras

(list of dataset extra dictionaries) - the dataset's extras (optional), extras are arbitrary (key: value) metadata items that can be added to datasets, each extra dictionary should have keys 'key' (a string), 'value' (a string)

relationships_as_object

(list of relationship dictionaries) - see package_relationship_create for the format of relationship dictionaries (optional)

relationships_as_subject

(list of relationship dictionaries) - see package_relationship_create for the format of relationship dictionaries (optional)

groups

(data.frame) the groups to which the dataset belongs, each row should have one or more of the following columns which identify an existing group: 'id' (the id of the group, string), or 'name' (the name of the group, string), to see which groups exist call group_list(). see example (optional)

owner_org

Curl args passed on to verb-POST (optional)

Examples

## Not run: 
# Setup
ckanr_setup(url = "https://demo.ckan.org/", key = getOption("ckan_demo_key"))

# create a package
## Example 1
(res <- package_create("foobar4", author="Jane Doe"))
res$author

## Example 2 - create package, add a resource
(res <- package_create("helloworld", author="Jane DOe"))

# include a group
# package_create("brownbear", groups = data.frame(id = "some-id"))


## End(Not run)
