It's on CRAN - Introducing the kofdata R package

At KOF, we have recently introduced a REST Interface to conveniently automate data downloads. R users can now benefit from an even more convenient way to consume KOF data: the brand new ‘kofdata’ CRAN package. The package allows to download Swiss time series data and meta information through simple R functions. Installing the package is a matter of: install.packages("kofdata") Once you have installed the package you can download data and obtain R time series objects with a simple function call.
