download_weather() makes it easy to download EnergyPlus weather files (EPW) and design day files (DDY).

download_weather(pattern, filename = NULL, dir = ".", type = c("all",
  "epw", "ddy"), ask = TRUE, max_match = 3)

Arguments

pattern

A regular expression used to search locations, e.g. "los angeles.*tmy3". The search is case-insensitive.

filename

File names (without extension) used to save downloaded files. Internally, make.unique() is called to ensure unique names.

dir

Directory to save downloaded files

type

File type to download. Should be one of "all", "epw" and "ddy". If "all", both weather files and design day files will be downloaded.

ask

If TRUE, a command line menu will be shown to let you select which one to download. If FALSE and the number of returned results is less than max_match, files are downloaded automatically without asking.

max_match

The max results allowed to download when ask is FALSE.

Value

A character vector containing paths of downloaded files.

Examples

if (FALSE) { download_weather("los angeles.*tmy3", "la") }
