Print session information

This is utils::sessionInfo() re-written from scratch to both exclude data that's rarely useful (e.g., the full collate string or base packages loaded) and include stuff you'd like to know (e.g., where a package was installed from).

Usage
session_info(pkgs = NULL, include_base = FALSE)
Arguments
pkgs

Either a vector of package names or NULL. If NULL, displays all loaded packages. If a character vector, also, includes all dependencies of the package.

include_base

Include base packages in summary? By default this is false since base packages should always match the R version.

Details

Columns in the printed package list:

  • package: package name

  • *: whether the package is attached to the search path

  • version: package version. If the version is marked with (!) that means that the loaded and the on-disk version of the package are different.

  • date: when the package was built, if this information is available. This is the Date/Publication or the Built field from DESCRIPTION. (These are usually added automatically by R.) Sometimes this data is not available, then it is NA.

  • source: where the package was built or installed from, if available. Examples: CRAN (R 3.3.2), Github (r-lib/pkgbuild@8aab60b), Bioconductor, local.

See package_info() for the list of columns in the data frame that is returned (as opposed to printed).
