The goal of ibmsunburst is to wrap the JavaScript library that IBM have produced for making sunburst personality insights charts for use in R and R Markdown documents.

Work on this package was part-sponsored by Hendrik Feddersen, a prominent HR Analytics advocate.


Below we input the path to a JSON file corresponding to the output of IBM Watson Personality Insights service and visualize it.

You can use the function on a list, on JSON or on a filepath, making it quite handy for integration in your workflow.

There is no R wrapper for the IBM Personality Insight API itself yet, but you could use it with httr, as shown in a very short example in the vignette.
