EST RStudio IDE AddIn
We developed an easy to use and intuitive Event Study addin for the popular RStudio IDE. This add-in was designed similar to our web-interface but gives you the advantage that you can directly work with the results from R.
How to Use
If you use RStudio IDE, installing our EventStudy package will automatically add the RStudio addin. The addin can be easily started by clicking Event Study in the Addins menu. If you do not find the addin in the menu, then you may find it in the window that is opened in Browse Addins….
You can work then in the addin as on our web API interface that is self-explanatory. Beside our web API interface, it is mandatory to use an EventStudyTools API key that can be obtained here.
One remark: By design, we used an upload field for the 3 data files (RequestFile, FirmData, and MarketData). Internally, we use just the path to the file.
