Description

This package connects to the site http://quotesondesign.com/ that uses the WordPress JSON REST API to provide a way for you to grab quotes.

Overview

This package contains the following function: randquote() that fetches a random quote and returns a dataframe along with the author name and link to the quote.

Installation

The stable version of randquotes can be installed from CRAN:

And the development version can be installed from github:

Note

Usage

randquote()
##     id                                                      quote                                       link

Get only the Quote

Sometimes you may not be interested in getting a dataframe that has ID and link, so this function randquote_simple() outputs only the quote with author name.

library(randquotes)

cat(randquotes::randquote_simple())
## When is the last time you saw a Lamborghini sale?
## -Chris Campbell
