devtools 0.5
* new `show_rd` function that will show the development version of a help
* external R commands always run in locale `C`, because that's what the CRAN
severs do.
* `clean_source` sources an R script into a fresh R environment, ensuring that
it can run independently of your current working environment. Optionally
(`vanilla = T`), it will source in a vanilla R environment which ignores all
local environment settings.
* On windows, `devtools` will also add the path to `mingw` on startup. (Thanks
to pointer from Dave Lovell)
devtools 0.4
* new `wd` function to change the working directory to a package subdirectory.
* `check_doc` now checks package documentation as a whole, in the same way
that `R CMD check` does, rather than low-level syntax checking, which is
done by `roxygen2. DESCRIPTION checking has been moved into `load_all`.
`check_rd` has been removed.
* `build` is now exported, and defaults to building in the package's parent
directory. It also gains a new `binary` parameter controls whether a binary
or a source version (with no vignettes or manuals) is built. Confusingly,
binary packages are built with `R CMD INSTALL`.
* `build_win` sends your package to the R windows builder, allowing you to
make a binary version of your package for windows users if you're using
linux or a max (if you're using windows already, use `build(binary = T)`)
* if using `.Rpackages` config file, default function is used last, not first.
* on Windows, `devtools` now checks for the presence of `Rtools` on startup,
and will automatically add it to the path if needed.
* `document` uses `roxygen2` instead of `roxygen`. It now loads package
dependency so that they're available when roxygen executes the package
source code.
* `document` has new parameter `clean` which clears all roxygen caches and
removes all existing man files. `check` now runs `document` in this mode.
* `dev_mode` will create directories recursively, and complain if it can't
create them. It should also work better on windows.
* `install_github` now allows you to specify which branch to download, and
automatically reloads package if needed.
* `reload` now will only reload if the package is already loaded.
* `release` gains `check` parameter that allows you to skip package check (if
you've just done it.)
* `test` automatically reloads code so you never run tests on old code
devtools 0.3
* new `bash()` function that starts bash shell in package directory. Useful if
you want to use git etc.
* removed inelegant `update_src()` since now superseded by `bash()`
* fix bug in ftp upload that was adding extraneous space
* `build` function builds package in specified directory. `install`, `check`
and `release` now all use this function.
* `build`, `install`, `check` and `release` better about cleaning up after
themselves - always try to both work in session temporary directory and
delete any files/directories that they create
devtools 0.2
* `install_github` now uses `RCurl` instead of external `wget` to retrieve
package. This should make it more robust wrt external dependencies.
* `load_all` will skip missing files with a warning (thanks to suggestion from Jeff Laake)
* `check` automatically deletes `.Rcheck` directory on successful completion
* Quote the path to R so it works even if there are spaces in the path.
devtools 0.1
* Check for presence of `DESCRIPTION` when loading packages to avoid false
* `install` now works correctly with `devel_mode` to install packages in your
development library
* `release` prints news so you can more easily check it
* All `R CMD xxx` functions now use the current R, not the first R found on
the system path.
