ClimMobTools: API Client for the ‘ClimMob’ platform in R


ClimMobTools the API Client for the ‘ClimMob’ platform in R. ClimMob is an open source software for decentralized large-N trials with the ‘tricot’ approach. Developed by van Etten et al. (2019) ‘tricot’ turns the research paradigm on its head; instead of a few researchers designing complicated trials to compare several technologies in search of the best solutions, it enables many participants to carry out reasonably simple experiments that taken together can offer even more information.
