Build package vignettes.
Builds package vignettes using the same algorithm that
R CMD build
does. This means including non-Sweave vignettes, using makefiles (if
present), and copying over extra files. The files are copied in the 'doc'
directory and an vignette index is created in 'Meta/vignette.rds', as they
would be in a built package. 'doc' and 'Meta' are added to
.Rbuildignore, so will not be included in the built package. These
files can be checked into version control, so they can be viewed with
vignette() if the package has been
load_all() without needing to re-build them locally.
build_vignettes(pkg = ".", dependencies = "VignetteBuilder", clean = TRUE, upgrade = "never", quiet = TRUE, install = TRUE, keep_md = TRUE)
package description, can be path or package name. See
as.package()for more information
Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.
TRUEis shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and "Suggests".
NAis shorthand for "Depends", "Imports" and "LinkingTo" and is the default.
FALSEis shorthand for no dependencies (i.e. just check this package, not its dependencies).
Remove all files generated by the build, even if there were copies there before.
One of "ask", "always" or "never". "ask" prompts the user for which out of date packages to upgrade. For non-interactive sessions "ask" is equivalent to "always".
FALSEare also accepted and correspond to "always" and "never" respectively.
TRUE, suppresses most output. Set to
FALSEif you need to debug.
TRUE, install the package before building vignettes.
TRUE, move md intermediates as well as rendered outputs. Most useful when using the
keep_mdYAML option for Rmarkdown outputs. See https://bookdown.org/yihui/rmarkdown/html-document.html#keeping-markdown.
