Can I access the API with R?

Hi,

I am using the Eikon API to download EoD data via Python. However, since we mainly use R, is anyone aware of a way to directly download the EoD data in R via the API?

Many thanks

Thanks Zhenya! However, I still didnt manage to connect.

I was told that set_app_id has been replaced by set_app_key. Is that correct for R too, right?

In the library I get still suggested set_app_id and i get an error when i try to run the key with set_app_key ('could not find function').

I freshly downloaded EIKONAPIR a couple of days ago but it seems that I still dont have the latest Version. I downloaded from here:

install_github("ahmedmohamedali/eikonapir")

In eikonapir library you need to use set_app_id function. What exactly do you mean when you say you didn't manage to connect?
