@eric_bickel You should give me the purrr sticker since without me you’d still have all those ugly apply functions all over your code


#3

:smile:

This is awesome! Thanks @Bill and the RStudio team!! You all rock!


#4

I call shenanigans without the code being published. And it had better be R code! :sob:

Congrats to all the winners! :clap: This is a great community already.


#5

Did you use set.seed()? :grin:


#6

Here’s the code that I bashed out to solve this problem:

library(httr)
library(tidyverse)

url <- "https://community.rstudio.com/directory_items.json?period=weekly&order=likes_received"

req <- httr::GET(url)
stop_for_status(req)
con <- httr::content(req)

users_raw <- con$directory_items
users <- tibble(
  name = users_raw %>% map_chr(c("user", "username")),
  likes = users_raw %>% map_int("likes_received"),
  title = users_raw %>% map_chr(c("user", "title"), .default = NA)
)

users %>%
  filter(is.na(title)) %>%
  select(-title) %>%
  sample_n(5, weight = likes)

RStudio: shenanigans, but never when it comes to reproducibility!

Thanks, @Bill! A 3yo just told me I’m not allowed to sing along to Little Mermaid songs, so I needed this W.


#8

It’s something about today, or kids being Disney snobs. I was told the same by my 4yo when singing to Beauty and the Beast. I do a great Gaston. I was crushed. :cry:


#9

Thanks so much, @Bill and to the rest of the RStudio team! This was great news to kick-off the weekend :grinning:

It says a lot about this community’s first week that knowing a heap of laptop stickers is headed my way is not even in my (not randomly sampled) top 5 favorite things here (even if I did text a small number of friends and family to brag :sunglasses:)


#10

Woo, thank you! This may be the thing that finally makes me break my bare Apple products habit!

Woo! I admittedly grabbed some stickers that RStudio brought to the Twin Cities R User Group meeting last night, but all of the dplyr stickers were gone at that point. Thank you!


#13

My computer is ready!


#14

WOOT!!

I’ve already got purrr sitting pretty on my laptop. I could definitely use the maggritr pipe, though…

Yayy! @Bill Now I also know why I wasn’t able to get @Bill for my username! :grin:
