There were a lot of merge conflicts because of the two different approaches. A few meetings ago, I think we said we wanted to use the encoding conversion part from
palnabarun/encodings and the data extraction/chart reading part from
kdorr/convert-numeric, which is what I tried to do in the merge.
test_utils.py, since the way that
kdorr/convert-temporal and ‘kdorr/convert-numeric` extract the data from the chart didn’t require reading any urls, the functions in _utils.py weren’t being used after the merge.
_utils.pyhad code to handle cases where the user gave an online dataset as a source.
