Find all the dependencies of a package and determine whether they are ahead
or behind CRAN. A
print() method identifies mismatches (if any)
between local and CRAN versions of each dependent package; an
update() method installs outdated or missing packages from CRAN.
package_deps( packages, dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"), type = getOption("pkgType") )
local_package_deps(pkgdir = ".", dependencies = NA)
dev_package_deps( pkgdir = ".", dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"), type = getOption("pkgType") )
# S3 method for package_deps update( object, dependencies = NA, upgrade = c("default", "ask", "always", "never"), force = FALSE, quiet = FALSE, build = TRUE, build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual", "--no-build-vignettes"), build_manual = FALSE, build_vignettes = FALSE, repos = getOption("repos"), type = getOption("pkgType"), ... )
A character vector of package names.
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
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).
The value "soft" means the same as
TRUE, "hard" means the same as
You can also specify dependencies from one or more additional fields, common ones include:
Config/Needs/website - for dependencies used in building the pkgdown site.
Config/Needs/coverage for dependencies used in calculating test coverage.
A character vector giving repositories to use.
Type of package to
path to a package directory, or to a package tarball.
One of "default", "ask", "always", or "never". "default"
respects the value of the
R_REMOTES_UPGRADE environment variable if set,
and falls back to "ask" if unset. "ask" prompts the user for which out of
date packages to upgrade. For non-interactive sessions "ask" is equivalent
FALSE are also accepted and correspond to
"always" and "never" respectively.
Force installation, even if the remote state has not changed since the previous install.
TRUE, suppress output.
TRUE build the package before installing.
Options to pass to
R CMD build, only used when
FALSE, don't build PDF manual ('--no-manual').
FALSE, don't build package vignettes ('--no-build-vignettes').
Additional arguments passed to
data.frame with columns:
||The dependent package's name,|
||The currently installed version,|
||The version available on CRAN,|
||An integer denoting whether the locally installed version of the package is newer (1), the same (0) or older (-1) than the version currently available on CRAN.|
