Datatblr generates a table volume containing the univariate description of all metric and categorical variables of a data set. Datatblr delivers the table volume as TEX and PDF file.
Datatblr is suitable for generating table volumes that typically appear in the appendix of research reports, or for the preparation of more detailed analysis.
To build the program:
- G++ compiler (std=c++17)
We recommend downloading the latest stable release of the program. If you download the program from the master branch, there is a chance that it may be unstable or not run at all.
The user interface is compatible with UNIX systems. If you are running Windows, you have to work directly with the R files! (You might want to check out the lite version.)
To build the Datatblr user interface, switch to the root directory of Datatblr, and run:
The program is operated via a console (Terminal), either by double-clicking on the executable (datatblr) or running the command:
Set R working directory
You can move the executable as you like. Make sure to set your R working directory to
/path/to/datatblr or move the
dtblr_core folder into your R working directory. There, Datatblr saves the table volume (TEX and PDF).
You can set your working directory in your
.Rprofile with this command:
You can also add the path of the executable to your PATH environment variable and then run the program using the command
Open Datatblr via a console:
and follow the instructions step by step.
Copy your data and your meta file to your R working directory and run:
./datatblr data.csv meta.csv 1
to generate a table volume with summarized missings.
Alternatively, you can exchange the 1 with a 2 to generate a table volume without missings:
./datatblr data.csv meta.csv 2
You can edit the preamble for the LaTeX files in
