I just started to work on my new package for this blog. This R package will include the code of all my tutorials and will make it accessible with easy function calls.


To install the ALPHA version of the package open up R and use:

require(devtools) #install if necessary (install.packages("devtools")




In this first ALPHA version the package just includes the functions for the Twitter authentication and for creating the sentiment cloud I described here.

You can call the functions with the ThinkToStart function:

ThinkToStart(FUNCTIONNAME, ... additional parameters)


Now you can create a sentiment cloud with:

ThinkToStart("SentimentCloud","iphone",30,"YOUR DATUMBOX API KEY")
