Provides conversion functionality between a broad range of scientific, historical, and industrial unit types.
An R package for converting things to other things. The package is not on CRAN but can be installed using:
convert(1:20, "kg", "g") convert(1:20, "sq yd", "km2") #This will produce an error: convert(1:20, "kg", "km2)
Units are converted using a lookup table, based on the POSC dictionary. You can explore this table using the
explore_units() function. This function launches a shiny app.
Figuring out which units can be converted to each other can be tricky, so convertr comes with an an shiny gadget to help you build valid
convert() expressions. This can be accesed either by calliing
convert_gadget() or through the addin menu. To access the addin make sure you are using a recent version of RStudio.
