datadigest 1.0.2

Initial release for datadigest, an R interface for Rho’s web-codebook JavaScript library. The r version of the codebook has been built using the htmlwidgets framework and consists of two key functions: codebook() and explorer(). codebook() delivers an interactive interface for a single data frame while explorer() extends this functionality, allowing the user to navigate through multiple data frames.

While codebook() and explorer() can be loaded as HTML widgets using their respective R functions, the package also includes a dedicated Shiny application for each. The shiny applications offer easy access to data currently loaded in the R session, the ability to upload data files, and/or the ability to download a static or interactive data summary. Following package installation, RStudio users may access the two applications via the toolbar as RStudio add-ins.
