Poster #7

Making http requests within R has gotten much easier with httr, jsonlite, and other tools. However, especially for consumers, the experience could be simpler. With inspiration from Python's httpie, the request R package makes a variety of assumptions that will fit most use cases: data will be in json format, you want to make a GET request, and you probably want back data.frame's. request allows non-standard evaluation to easily build up requests, but doesn't make you use it. request handles paging automatically, includes a retry helper, and more.
