Seven tools to make your Stata life more pleasant

Jesse Wursten

London Stata Conference 2019 from Stata Users Group

Abstract: I present seven quality of life improvements for everyday Stata usage. The first three send messages to your smartphone, for example, to tell you the do-file encountered an error or the end of its journey. The fourth allows for low level task parallelization, which saves effort, frustration, and time. The fifth is a straightforward single-line timer. The sixth lets you write do-files in a highly organized way with minimal effort (and it writes code, which is both amazing and a little scary). Finally, the seventh one makes it easy to access the US Census API.
