Plumber: turning your R code into an API – Jeff Allen

February 26, 2018

Abstract

In recent years, web APIs have become the common language between various programming languages and technologies. Plumber is an open-source package that enables you to create a web API out of your existing R code by merely adding some special comments to your functions. This allows you to leverage R from systems written in other languages.
