Programmatically extract TIOBE Index Ratings

TIOBE Index is an index (ranking) that claims to represent the popularity of programming languages. Yihui (The creator of blogdown package), recently wrote a blogpost titled “On TIOBE Index and the era of decision fatigue” and I strongly recommend you to go through that before continuing with this post. So the Disclaimer goes like this: This post/author doesn’t believe that TIOBE Index is a fair way to measure/present popularity of programming languages and this is writtet just to teach you how to extract/get TIOBE Index programmatically using the R package tiobeindexr
