[R-pkgs] CRAN new release: meedr package provides access to Central Bank of Brazil API

Fernando da Silva
Hello everyone,

Very happy to announce my first release on CRAN: *meedr. *The goal is to
provide quick and easy access to market expectations data to the main
macroeconomic indicators in the Focus report, made available by the Central
Bank of Brazil through the Expectations System data API. This data comes
from several financial institutions, such as: banks, brokers, funds,
consultancies, etc.

The *meedr* package offers an R interface to the API and other advantages:

   - Use of a caching system with package memoise to speed up repeated
   requests of data;
   - User can utilize all cores of the machine (parallel computing) when
   fetching a large batch of time series.


You can install the released version of meedr from CRAN with:
*install.packages("meedr")*

Best regards,

*Fernando da Silva*
Economist
