snippr provides tools to manage and install RStudio code snippets, including installing them from public repositories.
You can install
snippr with the devtools package:
Sharing and installing snippets
To share your snippets, create a GitHub repository with one or more
.snippets file at the top level: see the dgrtwo/snippets repository for an example. Anyone can then install your snippets using the code:
Note that you may need to restart RStudio for the snippets to load. If you want to install only for one of the languages in the repo, you can use the
snippets_install_github("dgrtwo/snippets", language = "r")
Or you can choose to install only a single snippet:
snippets_install_github("dgrtwo/snippets", language = "r", name = "S3")
If you prefer, you can share one .snippets file as a GitHub Gist (like this one), and install it with its ID:
snippets_install_gist("ecc6aec8d37af42cdd83", language = "r")
