Use a local folder as board


  • board_folder() creates a board inside a folder. You can use this to share files by using a folder on a shared network drive or inside a DropBox.

  • board_local() creates a board in a system data directory. It's useful if you want to share pins between R sessions on your computer, and you don't care where the data lives.

  • board_temp() creates a temporary board that lives in a session specific temporary directory. It will be automatically deleted once the current R session ends. It's useful for examples and tests.


board_folder(path, versioned = FALSE)

board_local(versioned = FALSE)

board_temp(versioned = FALSE)



Path to directory to store pins. Will be created if it doesn't already exist.


Should this board be registered with support for versions?
