sotkanet 0.9.79 (2022-02-01)

CRAN release: 2022-02-01


  • Functions pointing to external resources (sotkanet.json_query() and sotkanet.csv_query()) should now fail gracefully. New internal functions are in R/http_funs.R
  • New dependencies / imports: httr package for handling URLs and error messages and curl package for internet connection testing. jsonlite for handling data from json files
  • Http functions now include information on user agent. The default is “rOpenGov/sotkanet” to help API providers track package usage but it can be changed in relevant functions: GetDataSotkanet(), SotkanetIndicators() and SotkanetRegions().


  • Removed internal functions: GetDataSotkanetSingleIndicator and SotkanetData.
  • Removed dependency / import: rjson
  • Deleted unused function: base_url


  • Functionalities from GetDataSotkanetSingleIndicator and SotkanetData are now embedded in one function, GetDataSotkanet().
  • Some files in ./R/ folder have been renamed for better legibility: internal.R to SotkanetCollect.R and sotkanet.R to SotkanetRegions.R
  • New alias for downloading indicator metadata: SotkanetIndicatorMetadata() (usesSotkanetIndicator(id))
  • To help save bandwidth, when provided with a predefined list of indicators, SotkanetIndicators() now downloads metadata individually instead of fetching and subsetting the whole indicator dataset.
  • Vignette will no longer fetch external resources on CRAN.
  • Package license clarified: BSD 2-clause instead of FreeBSD
