rdryad 1.0.0 2020-06-25

BREAKING CHANGES

  • Package redone to work with new Dryad API v2. Most functions are defunct, and there’s three sets of new functions following the three major sets of API routes for datasets, versions, and files. See ?rdryad for more (#28) (#29)

rdryad 0.4.0 2018-06-18

NEW FEATURES

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • dryad_files (formerly download_url()) now scrapes Dryad page to get URLs to Dryad files instead of using their API, which was not dependable (#26)
  • dryad_fetch gains a parameter try_file_names (a boolean) which if TRUE we try to extract file names out of URLs (#26)

BUG FIXES

  • fix to solr rdryad functions to hard code use of xml return format, and followlocation to follow any redirects (#27)

DEFUNCT

NOTE

  • two new pacakage dependencies: tibble and data.table

  • gains two new functions handle2doi and doi2handle to convert between handles and DOIs, and DOIs and handles, respectively (#25)
