A Tool for Processing Steem Data

Steem is a blockchain-based social media platform (see < https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steemit>). The Steem social activity data are saved in the Steem blockchain, the SteemDB database, the SteemSQL database, and so on. 'steemr' is an R package that downloads the Steem data from the SteemDB and SteemSQL servers, re-organizes the data in a user-friendly way, and visualizes the data for further analysis.

steemr is an open source R package for playing with Steem data in the R environment. It can download, post process, analyze, and visualize Steem data on the basis of the powerful statistic power of R. Currently, the version 0.0.0 can:

  • obtain the complete post list for a given account,
  • obtain the complete account information from steemdb.com,
  • organized the 'follower' and 'following' information for a given account,
  • obtain the following history of a given account,
  • download the vote records of a given post, and
  • download the complete data of the latest 100 posts of a given account.
