Loading Criteo Data into R

Aims at loading Criteo online advertising campaign data into R. Criteo is an online advertising service that enables advertisers to display commercial ads to web users. The package provides an authentication process for R with the Criteo API. Moreover, the package features an interface to query campaign data from the Criteo API. The data can be downloaded and will be transformed into a R data frame.


The package can be installed directly from this Github repository with:
