Create dataset in r code

Create dataset in r code

Hi

I have a webapp in Shiny and i would like users to be able to press a button that then create a copy of a dataset that is suffixed with their user name. See code below;

user <- Sys.getenv("USER")

dfRules_live <- dkuReadDataset("Rules")

dkuWriteDatasetSchema(dfRules_live , paste0("Rules_",user))

However, the error tells me that "Warning: Error in dkuWriteDatasetSchema: Failed to write dataset: dataset does not exist"

I know in a workflow i have to create an empty dataset to populate, but how do i do this in r code?

TIA!

Hi @Von1974,

The following post describes creating a dataset from Python rather than R but may still be of some help:

Thanks @Marlan . This is helpful but there doesn't seem to be a R equivalent for the python function project.create_dataset, not that I can locate anyway!

@Marlan  looks like i cant do this in R, so ive used the link you sent me to convert the r code to python...now to work out how to reference this python code in the r script to run it!
