Bug fixes

galah 1.5.1

Mask function names from other packages

An experimental feature of version 1.5.1 is the ability to call functions from other packages (#161), as synonyms for galah_ functions. These are:

These are implemented as S3 methods for objects of class data_request, which are created by galah_call(). Hence new function names only work when piped after galah_call().

Experimental support for GBIF queries

The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is the umbrella organisation to which all other atlases supply data. Hence it is logical to be able to query GBIF and it’s “nodes” (i.e. the living atlases) via a common API. Supported functions are:

The current implementation is experimental and back-end changes are expected in future. Users who require a more stable implementation should use the {rgbif} package.
