An index of the official example and test Sheets. They are world-readable, so we do gs4_deauth().

How to get hold of the example Sheets yourself

gs4_examples() returns a named vector of Sheet IDs. It is also an instance of drive_id, to make good things happen with googledrive.

gs4_example() returns exactly one Sheet ID (or errors). It is an instance of drive_id. It is also an instance of sheets_id, which means printing will (try to) reveal current metadata about the Sheet.

gs4_example("chicken")
#> Spreadsheet name: chicken-sheet
#>               ID: 1ct9t1Efv8pAGN9YO5gC2QfRq2wT4XjNoTMXpVeUghJU
#>           Locale: en_US
#>        Time zone: America/Los_Angeles
#>      # of sheets: 1
#> 
#> (Sheet name): (Nominal extent in rows x columns)
#>  chicken.csv: 1000 x 26

gs4_example("gap")
#> Error: Found multiple matching example Sheets:
#> • "gapminder"
#> • "mini-gap"
#> ℹ Make the `matches` regular expression more specific.

Here’s a handy snippet to open all the example Sheets in browser tabs.

lapply(gs4_examples(), gs4_browse)

# for tidyversers
gs4_examples() %>% 
  purrr::walk(gs4_browse)

Test Sheets

These are more developer-facing, but it’s convenient to do them here too.
