The rscorecard package provides a series of piped functions (a la dplyr) to facilitate downloading Department of Education College Scorecard data. In reality it is simply a method for converting idiomatic R code into a properly formatted URL string that is then queried. This package requires an API key, which can be requested at https://api.data.gov/signup/.

Details

All command pipes must start with sc_init(), end with sc_get(), and be linked with the magrittr pipe function, %>%. Internal commands, sc_select, sc_filter, sc_year, sc_zip, can come in any order in the pipe chain. Only sc_select is required.
