Combine multiple data files from a common directory. The data files will be read into R and bound together, creating a single large data.frame. A general function is provided along with a specific function for data that was collected using the open-source experiment builder 'OpenSesame' < https://osdoc.cogsci.nl/>.
readbulk is an
R package that facilitates loading multiple data files with a similar structure and combining them into a single
data.frame, using the
read_bulk function. It wraps most common
R functions for reading data, retaining the flexiblity of the available tools.
For (experimental) psychologists, the package provides the
read_opensesame function which wraps the above, providing the appropriate defaults for loading the many files created by OpenSesame.
