This package is an easy way to integrate (automate) R programs using the Aquarela VORTX plataform. In other words, R programs can use r2vortx functions to send and receive jobs to/from VORTX.

Also, it has some functions that integrates R to OpenRefine as well. OpenRefine is an open source tool for data cleansing, and can be downloaded at http://openrefine.org/.

  • The main functions are:
    • vortx_organizer: Creates a job in VORTX AND runs Organizer, which peforms a pure automated clustering and outlier detection process while extracting the measurements of systemic importance of each factor/variable.
    • vortx_discoverer: Creates a job in VORTX AND runs Discoverer which is used for Business Scenario Discovery, which automatically shows the systemic combination of factors/variables related to a certain goal, key drivers and wheights of each variable.
    • vortx_dataset: Gets dataset of a processed job in VORTX.
    • vortx_info: Gets all available information from a processed job in VORTX.

Every function requires an API Key from VORTX, so it is recommended to add it as a variable in your programming environment.

  • Functions for OpenRefine:
    • refine_push: Sends data from R to local OpenRefine
    • refine_pull: Gets data from local OpenRefine to R
    • refine_list: Lists projects in local OpenRefine
    • refine_kill: Deletes project in local OpenRefine
    • refine_mime: Apply (mimes) changes from existent project in OpenRefine to R data

Arguments and usage can be found in the documentation.

01 - Basic Requirements

To use VORTX functions you will need:

  • An authorized VORTX API key
  • httr package installed
