rerddap 1.0.0

CRAN release: 2022-10-03

  • griddap dataframe now uses the same coordinate names returned in ‘rerddap::info()’
  • all grids can now be “melted” into a dataframe, not just lat-lon grids
  • fixed some bugs accessing some datasets not on lat-lon grid
  • vignette now included in package.

rerddap 0.8.0

CRAN release: 2021-11-19

  • Added global search function
  • fixed bug when dataset has a decreasing coordinate that is not latitude or longitude

rerddap 0.7.6

CRAN release: 2021-08-18


  • fixed a bug in dealing with trailing slashes in URLs

rerddap 0.7.4

CRAN release: 2021-03-05


  • fix a broken test

rerddap 0.7.0

CRAN release: 2020-11-03


  • vignettes only on package documentation site now (#87)
  • server() (to fetch known ERDDAP server URLs) now uses the list maintained by irishmarineinstitute/awesome-erddap on GitHub (#86)
  • better error handling for griddap(): if no dimension arguments passed, we error saying so (and no http requests made); in addition, if a dataset is passed to griddap(), to which the output of info() was also passed, then we can check if the dataset has griddap data or not, and fail saying so if not (#91)
  • griddap() and tabledap(): if info() output passed to these two funcitons, we will now use the url within that info output, and use a message telling the user we are doing so; now you don’t have to set the url if you pass info output (#92)

rerddap 0.6.5

CRAN release: 2019-07-20


  • fix a convert_units test that was failing because remote service had changed the response

rerddap 0.6.4

CRAN release: 2019-07-01


  • fix to internal fxn err_handle() for handling http errors - ERDDAP servers changed to some weird JSON-ish type format (#85)

rerddap 0.6.0

CRAN release: 2019-05-08


  • change all tibble::as_data_frame/tibble::data_frame to tibble::as_tibble (#79)
  • info() gains new element in its output list, base_url, the base url for the ERDDAP server under consideration (#80)
  • improved docs for griddap() with respect to what’s returned from the function (#81)
  • fix some test fixtures to use preserve exact bytes so that cran checks on debian clang devel don’t fail (#83)
  • add .github files: contributing, issue template, pull request template


  • fix for lat/lon parsing within griddap() to account for cases when min and max are reversed from the order they should be in (#78)
  • fix to griddap() to parse additioanl dimensions returned; previously we were only returning time, lat, and lon, plus one more (#82) thanks @afredstonhermann

rerddap 0.5.0

CRAN release: 2019-02-01


  • added new Caching section to package level manual file (?rerddap) about caching (#52)
  • use markdown docs in package (#75)
  • replace httr with crul (#54)
  • cache most tests with HTTP requests using vcr (#76)
  • add test for read parameter in griddap() (#47)
  • use default url via eurl(); used as default in main functions; set default url with env vars, see ?eurl (#41)
  • improve handling and reporting back to user of ERDDAP server errors (#70) (#73)
  • change to griddap(): when nc format gridded datasets have latitude and longitude we “melt” them into a data.frame for easy downstream consumption. When nc format gridded datasets do not have latitude and longitude components, we do not read in the data, throw a warning saying so. You can readin the nc file yourself with the file path (#74)
  • for for griddap() to support cases in wihch lat/lon runs north to south and south to north (#68)


rerddap 0.4.2

CRAN release: 2017-05-12


  • Now using hoardr to manage caching paths and such (#60). Also now asking users where they want to cache files, either in a rappdirs user cache dir or a temp directory. Now on tests and examples we use temp dirs.
  • Related to above, new functions cache_info() to get cache path and number of cached files, and cache_setup() to set cache path.
  • Related to above, cache_details(), cache_list(), and cache_delete() lose their cache_path parameter - now cache path is set package wide and we use the same cache path, so no need to set in the fxn call.


  • Fixes to a number of griddap() and tabledap() examples to use datasets that still exist (previous examples used datasets that are no gone)

rerddap 0.4.0

CRAN release: 2017-04-25


  • New vignette added that goes in to much more depth than the original vignette (#51) thx to @rmendels
  • info() function gains new attribute url with the base url for the ERDDAP server used (#42)
  • Replaced usage of internal compact data.frame code to use tibble package (#45)


  • Added another ERDDAP server to servers() function (#49)
  • Changed base URLs for default ERDDAP server from http to https (#50)
  • Added note to docs for griddap() and tabledap() for how to best deal with 500 server errors (#48)
  • Replaced all dplyr::rbind_all uses with dplyr::bind_rows (#46)

rerddap 0.3.4

CRAN release: 2016-01-14


  • Removed use of ncdf package, which has been taken off CRAN. Using ncdf4 now for all NetCDF file manipulation. (#35)
  • Failing better now with custom error catching (#31)
  • Added many internal checks for parameter inputs, warning or stopping as necessary - ERDDAP servers silently drop with no informative messages (#32)


  • Using now$size instead of file.size() to be backwards compatible with R versions < 3.2

rerddap 0.3.0

CRAN release: 2015-10-10


  • Cache functions accept the outputs of griddap() and tabledap() so that the user can easily see cache details or delete the file from the cache without having to manually get the file name. (#30)


  • All package dependencies now use importFrom so we only import functions we need instead of their global namespaces.


  • Fixed bug in parsing data from netcdf files, affected the griddap() function (#28)

rerddap 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2015-07-01


  • Added a suite of functions to manage local cached files (#17)


  • Added new ERDDAP server to list of servers in the servers() function (#21)


  • Fixed a few cases across a number of functions in which an empty list passed to query parmaeter in httr::GET() caused an error (#23)
  • Fixed retrieval of path to file written to disk by httr::write_disk() (#24)
  • last is a value accepted by ERDDAP servers, but internal functions weren’t checking correctly, fixed now. (#25)
  • wasn’t passing on the url parameter to the info() function. fixed now. (#26)

rerddap 0.1.0

CRAN release: 2015-05-11


  • released to CRAN
