There are two methods for setting your token, an environment variable in your
.Renviron file, or setting an option. If both are set, the environment
variable will always be used. It is encouraged to use the environment
variable approach, as this will persist between R sessions.
See details for how to get started.

Tiingo API token. A character.
A single logical. Should a message be displayed encouraging you to instead use an environment variable?
To use the Tiingo API, you must create an account and set an API token. It is completely free to get started and use their free source of data.
To sign up, use
riingo_browse_signup() and click Sign-up.
To find your API token, use
riingo_browse_token(). Note that you must be
signed in on the opened browser.
With your API token in hand, you can do one of two things:
Set the API token using the
RIINGO_TOKEN environment variable in
.Renviron file. This is recommended. The easiest way to access
this file is with
usethis::edit_r_environ(). Add a line containing
RIINGO_TOKEN = <your-token-here>. Do not put the token in quotes,
and make sure to restart R once you have set it. After that, you shouldn't
have to worry about it again.
Set the API token with
riingo_set_token(). This is only valid for the
current R session and must be done each time you open R.
