Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

View source: R/title.R

Description

Generate a short name (identifier) for an application given an application title.

Usage

1
2
generateAppName(appTitle, appPath = NULL, account = NULL,
  unique = TRUE)

Arguments

appTitle

A descriptive title for the application.

appPath

The path to the application's content, either a directory or an individual document. Optional.

account

The account where the application will be deployed. Optional.

unique

Whether to try to generate a unique name.

Details

This function modifies the title until it forms a suitable application name. Suitable application names are 3 - 64 characters long and contain only alphanumeric characters.

The function is intended to be used to find a name for a new application. If appPath and account are both specified, then the returned name will also be unique among locally known deployments of the directory (note that it is not guaranteed to be unique on the server). This behavior can be disabled by setting unique = FALSE.

Value

Returns a valid short name for the application.

Examples

# Generate a short name for a sample application
generateAppName("My Father's Country", "~/fathers-country", "myacct")
