Install a package from a git repository

It is vectorised so you can install multiple packages with a single command. You do not need to have git installed.

Usage
install_git(url, subdir = NULL, branch = NULL, credentials = NULL,
  args = character(0), force = FALSE, quiet = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
url
Location of package. The url should point to a public or private repository.
subdir
A sub-directory within a git repository that may contain the package we are interested in installing.
branch
Name of branch or tag to use, if not master.
credentials
A git2r credentials object passed through to clone.
args
DEPRECATED. A character vector providing extra arguments to pass on to git.
force
Force installation even if the git SHA1 has not changed since the previous install.
quiet
if TRUE suppresses output from this function.
...
