The goal of fitzRoy is to provide a set of functions that allows for users to easily get access to AFL data from sources such as afltables.com and footywire.com. There are also tools for processing and cleaning that data.
Install the released version of fitzRoy from CRAN:
Or install the development version from GitHub with:
# install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("jimmyday12/fitzRoy")
fitzRoy package can be used to simply get data from various
Primarily, the tool can be used to access data from various sources. Data is included in the package and can be access directly however this will not be up to date. Each source of data has functions for updating data during the season.
Various data is included from both AFL Tables and Footy Wire. At the most basic level, you can access match results and the upcoming fixture as below. Read the full Mens Vignette for further instructions.
results <- get_match_results() fixture <- get_fixture(season = 2019)
AFL Womens data
From 2019, we are able to provide access to AFL Women’s data. Read the full AFL Womens Vingette for details on how to access it.
NOTE: The AFL website has taken down the Women’s stats pages during the 2019/2020 offseason, so these functions no longer work. This is left for posterity and in the hope that they go back up evenually.
aflw_match_data <- get_aflw_match_data()
A specific use case might be to use
fitzRoy data as an input into a
model. See the ELO model
for an example of how this might be done.
