I'm having trouble to get application default credentials to work.

When I call the application default credentials loader directly:


I get the following error message:

Error in open.connection(con, "rb") : cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In file(txt) :
  'raw = FALSE' but '/home/faculty/.config/gcloud' is not a regular file
2: In open.connection(con, "rb") :
  cannot open file '/home/faculty/.config/gcloud': it is a directory

gargle appears to be attempting to load ~/.config/gcloud instead of ~/.config/gcloud/application_default_credentials.json.

Could it be that this line

pth <- path_home(".config", "gcloud")

needs to be changed to?:

pth <- path_home(".config", "gcloud", pth)

(Prior to this line pth has been assigned the value "application_default_credentials.json")
