pkgbuild (version 1.0.0)

pkgbuild_process: Build package in the background

Description

This R6 class is a counterpart of the build() function, and represents a background process that builds an R package.

Arguments

Usage

bp <- pkgbuild_process$new(path = ".", dest_path = NULL,
         binary = FALSE, vignettes = TRUE, manual = FALSE, args = NULL)
bp$get_dest_path()

Other methods are inherited from callr::rcmd_process and processx::process.

Arguments

See the corresponding arguments of build().

Examples

## Here we are just waiting, but in a more realistic example, you
## would probably run some other code instead...
bp <- pkgbuild_process$new("mypackage", dest_path = tempdir())
bp$is_alive()
bp$get_pid()
bp$wait()
bp$read_all_output_lines()
bp$read_all_error_lines()
bp$get_exit_status()
bp$get_dest_path()

Details

Most methods are inherited from callr::rcmd_process and processx::process.

bp$get_dest_path() returns the path to the built package.
