sometimes, to create a Minimum Reproducible Example, it would be much easier to upload a
csv or a
txt file here. However, the upload popup here only allows me to upload images. Why was it designed this way? Surely not for the file size - text files (at least the ones I'd like to use) are much smaller than most image files. I'm allowed to upload a
pdftools to extract data from it (I would be the first to refuse to do that, so I would never not expect other people to do that!).
I know the first reaction to this will be "why don't you recreate your issue in a small data frame that you can include in the reprex, instead than in an external text file?". But it's often the case, when dealing with I/O issues, that:
- I don't know exactly what is causing the issue
- the text file is too big to include in the reprex (say, 1000x30) but still so small that loading it in R on any modern pc is basically instantaneous, so I'm not wasting peoples' time.
Of course, I'll first try to create a Minimum Reproducible Example which doesn't need the full data, but if I try and fail to, it'd be nice to be able to share data.
Another solution would be to upload the file to Google Drive and share the URL here.
