In the video linked below we discuss how to convert your R code into an API using the awesome plumber package! Learn more by clicking here or by following the links below. The plumber package allows you to convert R functions into API calls. For example, rather than launching R and executing a function, you can use plumber to turn the function into an API request that can be called from other software (e.g. Python, cURL, etc.). This is enormously useful in a lot of applications e.g. building a web application with Python that can make API calls to R model objects, retrieving R plots into other applications, and more. Check out the video below to learn more!
