The package for formhub.R in R is simply called
formhub. For now, it cannot be installed from CRAN, but using Hadley Wickam's excellent
devtools package, you can install it directly from github. To install (or upgrade), run the following commands from your R terminal:
install.packages('devtools') library(devtools) install_github("formhub.R", username="SEL-Columbia") library(formhub)
And voila! The
formhub package is installed in your R system! You can check by running:
