A Quick Way to Initialize Objects from Dictionaries

Description

Given a Dictionary, retrieve objects with provided keys.

  • dictionary_sugar_get() to retrieve a single object with key .key.

  • dictionary_sugar_mget() to retrieve a list of objects with keys .keys.

  • dictionary_sugar() is deprecated in favor of dictionary_sugar_get().

  • If .key or .keys is missing, the dictionary itself is returned.

Arguments in ... must be named and are consumed in the following order:

  1. All arguments whose names match the name of an argument of the constructor are passed to the $get() method of the Dictionary for construction.

  2. All arguments whose names match the name of a parameter of the paradox::ParamSet of the constructed object are set as parameters. If there is no paradox::ParamSet in obj$param_set, this step is skipped.

  3. All remaining arguments are assumed to be regular fields of the constructed R6 instance, and are assigned via <-.

Usage

dictionary_sugar_get(dict, .key, ...)

dictionary_sugar(dict, .key, ...)

dictionary_sugar_mget(dict, .keys, ...)
