import_file_ui(
  id,
  title = TRUE,
  preview_data = TRUE,
  file_extensions = c(".csv", ".txt", ".xls", ".xlsx", ".rds", ".fst", ".sas7bdat",
    ".sav")
)

import_file_server(
  id,
  btn_show_data = TRUE,
  show_data_in = c("popup", "modal"),
  trigger_return = c("button", "change"),
  return_class = c("data.frame", "data.table", "tbl_df", "raw"),
  reset = reactive(NULL),
  read_fns = list()
)

Arguments

id

Module's ID.

title

Module's title, if TRUE use the default title, use NULL for no title or a shiny.tag for a custom one.

preview_data

Show or not a preview of the data under the file input.

file_extensions

File extensions accepted by shiny::fileInput(), can also be MIME type.

btn_show_data

Display or not a button to display data in a modal window if import is successful.

show_data_in

Where to display data: in a "popup" or in a "modal" window.

trigger_return

When to update selected data: "button" (when user click on button) or "change" (each time user select a dataset in the list).

return_class

Class of returned data: data.frame, data.table, tbl_df (tibble) or raw.

reset

A reactive function that when triggered resets the data.

read_fns

Named list with custom function(s) to read data:

  • the name must be the extension of the files to which the function will be applied

  • the value must be a function that can have 5 arguments (you can ignore some of them, but you have to use the same names), passed by user through the interface:

    • file: path to the file

    • sheet: for Excel files, sheet to read

    • skip: number of row to skip

    • dec: decimal separator

    • encoding: file encoding

Value
