Register shortcuts in R Build Status Coverage Status

This package provides the ability to create shortcuts for use in the interactive R console to prevent yourself from writing commonly used expressions multiple times.

For example, if you frequently find yourself typing some_annoyingly$long_expression, you can bind it to S by writing mappy(S = some_annoyingly$long_expression).

Now, typing S in your interactive R console executes the expression in full each time. Note that mappy relies on the ~/.R/mappy file (which it will create the first time it needs it) to make this work between sessions. If you wish to use a different file, set options( = "/your/dir").

Mappy shortcuts do not apply outside of interactive R sessions.


mappy(S = some_expression) # some_expression is now bound to S
                           # This will persist between R sessions.
unmappy("S")  # Will unmap the expression bound to S.
mappy_all() # A named list of all mapped expressions.


This package is not yet available from CRAN (as of March 22, 2015). To install the latest development builds directly from GitHub, run this instead:

if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("robertzk/director") # A dependency

You should then add library(mappy) to your ~/.Rprofile to ensure it loads on session startup.
