The `Rraven`

package is designed to facilitate the
exchange of data between R and Raven sound analysis
software (Cornell Lab
of Ornithology). Raven provides very
powerful tools for the analysis of (animal) sounds. R can simplify the
automatization of complex routines of analyses. Furthermore, R packages
as warbleR, seewave and monitoR (among
others) provide additional methods of analysis, working as a perfect
complement for those found in Raven. Hence, bridging
these applications can largely expand the bioacoustician’s toolkit.

Currently, most analyses in Raven cannot be run in
the background from a command terminal. Thus, most `Rraven`

functions are design to simplify the exchange of data between the two
programs.

Install/load the package from CRAN as follows:

```
# From CRAN
install.packages("Rraven")
#load package
library(Rraven)
```

To install the latest developmental version from github you will need the R package remotes:

```
# From github
::install_github("maRce10/Rraven")
remotes
#load package
library(Rraven)
```

The package vignette provides detailed examples for each function in
`Rraven`

, including both the R code as well as the additional
steps in Raven
required to fully accomplished the analyses. You can pull it up as
follows:

`vignette("Rraven")`

The animations explaining additional steps in Raven are shown in more detail on the github version of this vignette, which can be downloaded as follows (saves the file “Rraven.github.html” in your current working directory):

```
download.file(url = "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/maRce10/Rraven/master/gifs/Rraven.hitgub.html",
destfile = "Rraven.hitgub.html")
```

The downloaded file can be opened by any internet browser.
