R Packages


The newsanchor R package provides a wrapper for https://newsapi.org/. News API is a simple HTTP REST API for searching and retrieving live articles from all over the web. You can get breaking news headlines, and search for articles from over 30,000 news sources and blogs.

The newsanchor project was / is a CorrelAid project that I initiated together with Jan Dix to give data scientists from our network the opportunity to learn R package development. Together with Yannik and Lars, we were able to develop newsanchor over a couple of months and release it to CRAN. 🎉 💪


sealr is an R package aiming to provide authentication and authorization strategies for users of the plumber R package.

I co-developed a first working prototype / skeleton of this package together with Jan Dix, a good friend of mine whom I know from CorrelAid.

I gave a talk on sealr at useR2019, the annual R user conference:

Right now, we are not actively developing sealr. If you want to contribute to it or take over the project, please contact me.
