A "tabular-data-resource" (<>) is a simple format to describe a singular tabular data resource such as a CSV file. It includes support both for metadata such as author and title and a schema to describe the data, for example the types of the fields/columns in the data. Create a tabular-data-resource by providing a data.frame and specifying metadata. Write and read tabular-data-resources to and from disk.
