Suite of tools for managing cached files, targeting
use in other R packages. Uses 'rappdirs' for cross-platform paths.

uncompressed easily to save disk space.
hoard - manage cached files
Exposes a single
R6 object so that when the package is imported in another
package for managing cached files, you don't need to pollute the NAMESPACE
with a bunch of functions. (you can always just
with a single object there are other benefits as well [maintaining state, e.g.]).
(x <- hoardr::hoard()) #> <hoard> #> path: #> cache path:
set cache path
x$cache_path_set("foobar", type = 'tempdir') #>  "/var/folders/fc/n7g_vrvn0sx_st0p8lxb3ts40000gn/T//RtmpsvaRsk/R/foobar"
make the directory if doesn't exist
put a file in the cache
cat("hello world", file = file.path(x$cache_path_get(), "foo.txt"))
list the files
x$list() #>  "/var/folders/fc/n7g_vrvn0sx_st0p8lxb3ts40000gn/T//RtmpsvaRsk/R/foobar/foo.txt"
x$details() #> <cached files> #> directory: /var/folders/fc/n7g_vrvn0sx_st0p8lxb3ts40000gn/T//RtmpsvaRsk/R/foobar #> #> file: /foo.txt #> size: 0 mb
delete by file name
x$delete("foo.txt") x$list() #> character(0)
