boxr

cran version R-CMD-check codecov monthly_downloads

A lightweight, opinionated, high-level R interface to the box.com API, standing on the shoulders of httr.

Box is a cloud content-management and file-sharing service. The goal of the boxr package is to make it easier for you to integrate your Box account into your R workflow.

New in boxr 0.3.6 (development)

No changes yet; all changes are detailed in the NEWS.

Installation

You can install boxr from CRAN, with:

install.packages("boxr")

If you’d like to install the development version from GitHub, use:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("r-box/boxr")

Documentation

The package-documentation website is created and maintained using pkgdown. The documentation website consists of:

Usage

We have a Get-started article that goes into more detail on interacting with your Box account using R.

Authentication

If you have access to client_id and client_secret for a Box-app, you can use box_auth() to authenticate:

box_auth(client_id = "your_client_id", client_secret = "your_client_secret")

This will kick off a process that, all being well, will keep you authenticated for the rest of the R session. By saving this information to your .Renviron file, at your next R session you can use, without arguments:

box_auth()

If you don’t have access to client_id and client_secret, you should read the authentication article to determine your next steps. In most cases, this next step will be to create an interactive Box-app
