I'm looking for links explaining two very important parts of writing a reproducible example:
- don't load data from your local file system - maybe even better, "don't load data at all", because some people don't feel comfortable downloading data from a URL (personally I'm fine with downloading
csvfiles or accessing remote databases through the API of well-known CRAN packages such as
eurostat, but it's not BP for reprexes and anyway YMMV)
- you don't actually load the
reprexpackage in your reprex - this can be a bit difficult to explain over the Internet sometimes, the discussion risks becoming quite meta.
Which links do you think would be the best for these specific points? I'm going to use reprex dos and don'ts (h/t Mara) and the reprex video by Jenny Bryan, which is great! but it's a bit long, so I'm not sure if that could put off some learners. Do you think these are ok for these two points, or would you use something else? Ideally, I'd need stuff which is specific on these two points, rather than a omni-comprehensive list of links about reprexes. The reason is that I already linked to our great reprex FAQ, which contains all of the above and much more, thus now I need to be specific.
