hansard: Accessing Westminster Parliament Data

License: MIT CRAN_Status_Badge GitHub tag Travis-CI Build Status AppVeyor Build Status Coverage Status DOI

An R package to automatically fetch data from the UK Parliament API. Ironically, Hansard data is not yet accessible through the API. To explore all available data see http://www.data.parliament.uk/. Documentation for the API itself is available here.

Like the UK parliament API, this package is a work in progress. Additional functionalities will be added to the package as they are developed in the API. The most up-to-date documentation for this package will always be available at https://docs.evanodell.com/hansard/.

To install from CRAN run:

install.packages("hansard")

To install the development version run:

#install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("evanodell/hansard")

Using hansard

For an introduction to hansard, please see the vignette. If you are unfamiliar with web APIs this introductory course is useful.
