Defaulting to true, since usually it's not germane to the problem

Does this require computing on the language, e.g., find and transform all library() calls?

In a similar vein, I tend to forget to load "magrittr" in my reprexes (because I have it in .Rprofile), it would be great if reprex could detect pipe usage and fix the code for me.

You could either either use a hack to bind a session-wide packageStartupMessage handler, or provide a shim for library()

A lower tech solution is to insert extra chunk headers before and after every run of library() calls. If I do that by hand, it already works with the current package:

Input:

#+ message = FALSE
library(tidyverse)
message("1 can you hear me now?")

#+ body
as_tibble(iris)
message("2 can you hear me now?")

Output:

library(tidyverse)
message("1 can you hear me now?")
as_tibble(iris)

Maybe just add a library argument to reprex(), defaulting to some option? (This package is mostly for interactive use, an option seems okay to me.)

it would be great if reprex could detect pipe usage and fix the code for me.

What fix do you have in mind here? Maybe insert

`%>%` <- magrittr::`%>%`

whenever the pipe is found in the source? But so many packages re-export it and this wouldn't be necessary. Or do you mean deploy the fix iff the reprex fails?

Yes, or library(magrittr). But I don't want to overthink this.

I'd find it easier to write reprex(library = "magrittr") for some one-liner I've copied to the clipboard, than starting a new text file and typing the library() call myself, then copying the contents and then calling reprex().

Maybe surround the whole knit() call with suppressPackageStartupMessages() (or an equivalent?)

To what extent are we trying to suppress the tidyverse startup message vs startup messages in general? Because if it's focused on the tidyverse, we just toggle this option in the template:

I have solved the specific problem of suppressing the tidy verse startup message. I'm going to close this and see if we truly feel the need for more general mechanism.

Opened a separate issue re: the pipe: #106.
