After a few quiet months, a new version of rfoaas is now on CRAN. As before, it shadows upstream release of FOAAS from which carried over the version number 0.1.6.
The rfoaas package provides an interface for R to the most excellent FOAAS service–which provides a modern, scalable and RESTful web service for the frequent need to tell someone to f$#@ off.
Release 0.1.6 of FOAAS builds on the initial support for filters and now adds working internationalization. This is best shown by example:
R> off("Tom", "Everyone") # standard upstream example
 "Fuck off, Tom. - Everyone"
R> off("Tom", "Everyone", language="fr") # now in French
 "Va te faire foutre, Tom. - Everyone"
R> off("Tom", "Everyone", language="de", filter="shoutcloud") # or in German and LOUD
 "VERPISS DICH, TOM. - EVERYONE"
We start with a standard call to
off(), add the (now fully functional upstream) language support and finally illustrate the shoutcloud.io filter added in the preceding 0.1.3 release.
As usual, CRANberries provides a diff to the previous CRAN release. Questions, comments etc should go to the GitHub issue tracker.
