There are two strategies to working with data in Domino:
You can copy your data into Domino
If you are working with data that is on your local machine or in a shared server, you might want to upload your data into Domino.
You can query your data from Domino
In this tutorial, we will use the terminal in Rstudio to copy data into the project.
If you have not done so, complete Step 3
to start a Rstudio workspace.
Your starting file path is
/mnt. By default, this is considered the
root of your Domino project. If you add or modify files in
can save them back to your project when you stop or sync the workspace.
Use the Tools > Terminal > New Terminal menu to open a Rstudio terminal.
In the new terminal, run the following command to fetch some data from the BMRS:
curl -o data.csv "https://www.bmreports.com/bmrs/?q=ajax/filter_csv_download/FUELHH/csv/FromDate%3D2019-09-15%26ToDate%3D2019-10-02/&filename=GenerationbyFuelType_20191002_1657"
In the File Changes tab of your workspace, type a commit message in the text box.
Full Sync to save the new file
This saves any changes that were made in your workspace session back to your project.
Stop your workspace.
Click the Domino logo to return to your project. In the navigation pane, go to the Files section of Domino. Notice that the raw data has been saved in the latest revision.
