Install a package from a local file

This function is vectorised so you can install multiple packages in a single command.

Usage
install_local(path = ".", subdir = NULL, dependencies = NA,
  upgrade = c("ask", "always", "never"), force = FALSE,
  quiet = FALSE, build = !is_binary_pkg(path),
  build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual",
  "--no-build-vignettes"), repos = getOption("repos"),
  type = getOption("pkgType"), ...)
Arguments
path

path to local directory, or compressed file (tar, zip, tar.gz tar.bz2, tgz2 or tbz)

subdir

subdirectory within url bundle that contains the R package.

dependencies

Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.

TRUE is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and "Suggests". NA is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports" and "LinkingTo" and is the default. FALSE is shorthand for no dependencies (i.e. just check this package, not its dependencies).

upgrade

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 "ask" prompts the user for which out of date packages to upgrade.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". TRUE and FALSE are also accepted and correspond to "always" and "never" respectively.

force

Force installation, even if the remote state has not changed since the previous install.

quiet

If TRUE, suppress output.

build

If TRUE build the package before installing.

build_opts

Options to pass to R CMD build, only used when build is TRUE.

repos

A character vector giving repositories to use.

type

Type of package to update.

...

Other arguments passed on to utils::install.packages().
