R package nbastatR can't request data
Having written some R code on my local machine, I am now running this code on my Ubuntu Digital Ocean Droplet. I have successfully installed the package
nbastatR however when I attempt to run any of the data request functions, the code will hang as if the Droplet doesn’t have the abilty to pull data into my R session.
E.g., the following code will hang when run on my Droplet (hang as in RStudio will show the red stop sign until you terminate the script). This will run within 2 seconds on my local machine.
library(nbastatR) days_scores(game_dates = "2017-12-31", include_standings = F, return_message = T)
Is there something that needs to be enabled to allow the Droplet to access the ‘outside world’ via R?
