I was in the process of cleaning up my package for submission to CRAN when I learned that the BLS has released v2 of their API service. This version requires a key but allows for more requests plus annual average calculations which is cool.
I was shocked and gratified to see that under the Sample Code: R page they were featuring my work with this acknowledgement:
My submission to CRAN has not accepted yet, but I’m still working on it. In the mean time it is available through GitHub.
