insertPackage: Insert a package source or binary file into a drat repository

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Options Author(s) Examples

View source: R/insertPackage.R

Description

R can use multiple archives: CRAN, BioConductor and Omegahat have been supported for years. It is equally easy to add local archives from the same machine, or local network, or university / company network as well as other publically available repositories. This function aids in the process, and defaults to inserting a given source archive into a given repository.

insertPackage(file, repodir = getOption("dratRepo", "~/git/drat"),
  commit = FALSE, pullfirst = FALSE, action = c("none", "archive",
  "prune"), ...)

insert(...)

Arguments

file

An R package in source or binary format,

repodir

A local directory corresponding to the repository top-level directory.

commit

Either boolean toggle to select automatic git operations ‘add’, ‘commit’, and ‘push’ or, alternatively, a character variable can be used to specify a commit message; this also implies the ‘TRUE’ values in other contexts.

pullfirst

Boolean toggle to call git pull before inserting the package.

action

A character string containing one of: “none” (the default; add the new package into the repo, effectively masking previous versions), “archive” (place any previous versions into a package-specific archive folder, creating such an archive if it does not already exist), or “prune” (calling pruneRepo).

...

For insert the aliases variant, a catch-all collection of parameters. For insertPackage arguments passed to write_PACKAGES.

Details

This function inserts the given (source or binary) package file into the given (local) package repository and updates the index. By setting the commit option to TRUE, one can then push to a remote git code repository. If the git2r package is installed, it is used for the interaction with the git repository; otherwise the git shell command is used.

An aliased function insert is also available, but not exported via NAMESPACE to not clobber a possibly unrelated function; use it via drat:::insert().

Value

NULL is returned.

Options

Set using options

dratRepo

Path to git repo. Defaults to ~/git/drat

dratBranch

The git branch to store packages on. Defaults to gh-pages
