Load One or More GitHub Packages

Description

This function is a wrapper for install_github and require. It checks to see if a package is installed, if not it attempts to install the package from GitHub.

Usage

1
p_load_gh(..., char, install = TRUE, update = getOption("pac_update"))

Arguments

char

Character vector containing repository address to load. If you are calling p_load_gh from within a function (or just having difficulties calling it using a character vector input) then pass your character vector of packages to load to this parameter directly.

install

logical. If TRUE will attempt to install a package not found in the library.

update

logical. If TRUE will attempt to update all out of date packages. Default allows the user to set a "pac_update" in his/her .Rprofile.

...

Repository address(es) in the format username/repo[/subdir][@ref|#pull]. Note that this must be a character string.
