deploy_to_branchR Documentation

Build and deploy a site locally

Description

Assumes that you're in a git clone of the project, and the package is already installed. Use usethis::use_pkgdown_github_pages() to automate this process using GitHub actions.

Usage

deploy_to_branch(
  pkg = ".",
  commit_message = construct_commit_message(pkg),
  clean = TRUE,
  branch = "gh-pages",
  remote = "origin",
  github_pages = (branch == "gh-pages"),
  ...,
  subdir = NULL
)

Arguments

pkg

Path to package.

commit_message

The commit message to be used for the commit.

clean

Clean all files from old site.

branch

The git branch to deploy to

remote

The git remote to deploy to

github_pages

Is this a GitHub pages deploy. If TRUE, adds a CNAME file for custom domain name support, and a .nojekyll file to suppress jekyll rendering.

...

Additional arguments passed to build_site().

subdir

The sub-directory where the site should be built on the branch. This argument can be used to support a number of site configurations. For example, you could build version-specific documentation by setting subdir = "v1.2.3"; deploy_to_branch() will build and deploy the package documentation in the v.1.2.3/ directory of your site.
