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 the git2r package, or an external git client installed.

Usage
install_git(url, subdir = NULL, branch = NULL, git = c("auto", "git2r",
  "external"), ...)
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.

git

Whether to use the git2r package, or an external git client via system. Default is git2r if it is installed, otherwise an external git installation.
