get_dependencies(
  package,
  downloads = TRUE,
  bioc = FALSE,
  local = FALSE,
  dependency_type = "strong"
)

Arguments

package

A character. Name of the package that is on CRAN, Bioconductor repository or locally installed. See bioc and local arguments.

downloads

A logical. If TRUE add package downloads data. By default it's TRUE.

bioc

A logical value. If TRUE the Bioconductor dependencies data will be taken from the Bioconductor repository. For this option to work properly, BiocManager package needs to be installed.

local

A logical value. If TRUE only data of locally installed packages will be used (without API usage).

dependency_type

A character vector. Types of the dependencies that should be sought, a subset of c("Imports", "Depends", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", "Enhances"). Other possibilities are: character string "all", a shorthand for the whole vector; character string "most" for the same vector without "Enhances"; character string "strong" (default) for the first three elements of that vector. Works analogously to package_dependencies.

Value

An object of package_dependencies class.
