googleformr is an API to Google Forms, allowing users to POST data securely to Google Forms without needing authentication or permissioning.
To download the development version of googleformr:
if (!require("pacman")) install.packages("pacman") pacman::p_load_gh("data-steve/googleformr")
googleformr comes with a
comments_gformr function that was built with googleformr, allowing useRs to send comments to
a Google Form I've created for collecting user feedback.
Not every useR has a github account for posting issues, nor do they run their own blog, nor do they have access to nearby useR groups. So finding new ways to stay accessible to my useRs is important to me.
Give it a try with something like below!
googleformr::comments_gformr( post_content = "It would useful for functionality to help distinguish in the data between lots of comments from one useR vs. many useRs" )
You can create your own
comments_pkg_name function by linking it to a Google Form using
something along the lines of the code below:
# create function form <- "your_google_form_url" comments_pkg_name <- googleformr::gformr(form , custom_reply = "Thanks for supporting pkg_name")
Note: it is recommended to call your comments function some clearly signalling a comment purpose but also something specific to your package.
So a function name following the pattern
comments_pkg_name should get the best of easy
IntelliSense auto-complete and distinguishability from other packages using the same
Once you rebuild your package and post it to github or CRAN, your useRs can send comments directly to you from the R console by simply putting their comments into your comments function.
You can test that your new
comments_pkg_name function works by:
check_form_worksfunction like so:
check_form_works( comments_pkg_name("test") ). Either "All good" will appear or a specific http status message describing the error.
You can also extract Google Form question text or entry points using to make sure you can bring back the same information as is on your form:
# questions form <- "your_google_form_url" form %>% get_form() %>% get_form_questions() # entry ids form %>% get_form() %>% get_form_entry_ids()
