R Package for the BitCoinCharts.com API

Bitcoincharts provides financial and technical data related to the Bitcoin network and this data can be accessed via a JSON application programming interface (API) and can be used for ad hoc reporting purposes.

The Bitcoincharts JSON-based web services API makes working with BitcoinCharts data in the R Project for Statistical Computing straightforward and we have developed a package in R to facilitate this — see the API usage examples below.
