Journalism is in a state of crisis. Profitable outlets are driven by clickbait; unprofitable activities like investigative journalism or local news reporting simply disappear. How can we fix this?

Perhaps automation can help:

  1. Help writers be more productive
  2. Make marketing and distribution easier
  3. Make data-driven journalism easier for all

wordpressr is an attempt to bring more automation, and the ensuing benefits, to journalism and publishing in general by making the APIs built into every WordPress site easily accessible for developers using the R programming language, a language designed specifically for data analysis and machine learning. If you are an R developer looking to learn more, please see the wordpressr vignette, and install the package via CRAN

R developers can contribute to package development and file issues on GitHub. For organizations interested in learning more about our content marketing services, visit our main website at sixjupiter.com.
