wikipediatrend: Public Subject Attention via Wikipedia Page View Statistics
Version 1.1.10

Public attention is an interesting field of study. The internet not only allows to access information in no time on virtually any subject but via page access statistics gathered by website authors the subject of attention as well can be studied. For the omnipresent Wikipedia those access statistics are made available via '' a server providing the information as file dumps as well as as web API. This package provides an easy to use, consistent and traffic minimizing approach to make those data accessible within R.
