Details

getModuleVersion extracts a module's most recent version by looking at the module ‘.zip’ files contained in the module directory. It takes the most recent version, based on the name of the zip file.

See the modules vignette for details of module directory structure (https://spades-core.predictiveecology.org/articles/ii-modules.html#module-directory-structure-modulename), and see our SpaDES-modules repo for details of module repository structure (https://github.com/PredictiveEcology/SpaDES-modules).
