This function is vectorised on
repo so you can install multiple
packages in a single command.
install_github(repo, username = NULL, ref = "master", subdir = NULL, auth_token = github_pat(), host = "api.github.com", ...)
Repository address in the format
username/repo[/subdir][@ref|#pull]. Alternatively, you can specify
refusing the respective parameters (see below); if both is specified, the values in
User name. Deprecated: please include username in the
Desired git reference. Could be a commit, tag, or branch name, or a call to
github_pull. Defaults to
subdirectory within repo that contains the R package.
To install from a private repo, generate a personal access token (PAT) in https://github.com/settings/applications and supply to this argument. This is safer than using a password because you can easily delete a PAT without affecting any others. Defaults to the
Github API host to use. Override with your github enterprise hostname.
