How to Use the ESSENCE APIs with the Rnssp Package


In July 2021, NSSP announced the release of the Rnssp R package which facilitates access to the ESSENCE system via a secure and simple interface. Rnssp provides methods that streamline the data pull and simplify R code previously required by users to pull data via the APIs using the keyring library. In this tutorial demonstrates how to pull data from the ESSENCE system using Rnssp.

Note: The Rnssp package is yet to be released on CRAN and can be installed from its Github repository. You may download the latest pre-packaged version 0.0.2 (Rnssp_0.0.2.tar.gz) and manually install it.
