Description Usage Arguments Examples

View source: R/dribble.R

Description

Converts various representations of Google Drive files into a dribble, the object used by googledrive to hold Drive file metadata. Files can be specified via:

This is a generic function.

For maximum clarity, get your files into a dribble (or capture file id) as early as possible. When specifying via path, it's best to include the trailing slash when you're targetting a folder. If you want the folder foo, say foo/, not foo.

Some functions, such as drive_cp(), drive_mkdir(), drive_mv(), and drive_upload(), can accept the new file or folder name as the last part of path, when name is not given. But if you say a/b/c (no trailing slash) and a folder a/b/c/ already exists, it's unclear what you want. A file named c in a/b/ or a file with default name in a/b/c/? You get an error and must make your intent clear.
