Vanilla Air introducing R-Tools

Vanilla Analytics latest update introduced a new wizard type, R-Tools, to help developers with datasets recoding R-Tools is a first set of 6 functions/wizard to generate R code, with focus on recoding datasets :

  1. Date to Age Conversion : Switch a date to a number (age) … when you have a birthdate, you will get a number
  2. Age to Range conversion : From a number (age), create new classes (age range) … from a number, build a range
  3. New classification Group : Create new level in a dimension … for example : when you have country column and want a continent column
  4. New Calculated Column : Apply a calcul on a column … take an object, and apply a formula on it
  5. Filter Column : Filter your dataset … it will gives you a new dataset, filtered using your own filter
  6. Recode Column : Modify a column value, useful to correct wrong information in your dataset

We are already working on adding new wizard for R code generation, using certified R packages.
