listDatasets {crunch}R Documentation

Get the names of datasets in a project

Description

listDatasets() is a convenience function for quickly seeing what datasets are in a project. It is equivalent to names(datasets(proj)), with some additional optional arguments.

Usage

listDatasets(
  kind = c("active", "all", "archived"),
  project = NULL,
  refresh = FALSE,
  shiny = FALSE
)

Arguments

kind

character specifying whether to look in active, archived, or all datasets. Default is "active", i.e. non-archived.

project

ProjectFolder entity, character name of a project, or NULL, the default. If a Project entity or reference is supplied, the function will display datasets from that Project's datasets. If NULL, your personal folder will be used.

refresh

logical: should the function check the Crunch API for new datasets? Default is FALSE.

shiny

logical: launch a Shiny gadget to help select the right dataset. The gadget will return a valid loadDataset() call which loads the selected dataset. The gadget requires RStudio, as well as the crunchy package.

Details

Specifying listDatasets(shiny = TRUE) will, instead of printing dataset names, load a Shiny gadget that provides a GUI for navigating the project tree to find a dataset, if you're running in RStudio.

Value

A character vector of dataset names, each of which would be a valid input for loadDataset()
