Path to the project's home directory, where it's installed should be specified in R environment file, either system-wide (requires corresponding permissions), or, better, local (file ".Renviron" in user's home directory), as follows:
DISS_FLOSS_HOME = <path to project home directory>
Successful import of open source software repositories' data and startup companies data requires specifying corresponding data sources' credentials as values of environment variables. This also should be done via R environment file, preferably the same ".Renviron" file, as above:
# SourceForge Research Data Archive (SRDA) SRDA_USER = <SRDA user name> SRDA_PASS = <SRDA password> # CrunchBase CB_API_KEY = <CrunchBase API key>
