wflow_git_remote is a convenience function for managing remote repositories from R. By default it displays the current remote repositories (analogous to git remote -v). It can add a remote, remove a remote, or update the URL for an existing remote.

wflow_git_remote(remote = NULL, user = NULL, repo = NULL,
  protocol = "https", action = "add", domain = "github.com",
  verbose = TRUE, project = ".")

Arguments

remote

character (default: NULL). The name of the remote.

user

character (default: NULL). The username for the remote repository.

repo

character (default: NULL). The name of the remote repository on the Git hosting service (e.g. GitHub or GitLab).

protocol

character (default: "https"). The protocol for communicating with the Git hosting service (e.g. GitHub or GitLab). Must be either "https" or "ssh".

action

character (default: "add"). The action to perform on the remotes. Must be one of "add", "remove", or "set_url". This argument is ignored if remote = NULL.

domain

character (default: "github.com"). The domain of the remote host. For example, if you want to host your Git repository at GitLab, you would specify "gitlab.com".

verbose

logical (default: TRUE). Display the current remotes. Analogous to git remote -v.

project

character (default: ".") By default the function assumes the current working directory is within the project. If this is not true, you'll need to provide the path to the project directory.

Value

Invisibly returns a named character vector of the remote URLs.

Details

wflow_git_remote constructs a URL to a remote repository based on the input username, repository name, protocol (https or ssh), and domain (e.g. "github.com" or "gitlab.com"). It can add a remote (action = "add"), remove a remote (action = "remove"), or update the URL for an existing remote (action = "set_url").

This function cannot change the name of an existing remote. To accomplish this, you could run Git from the Terminal (git remote rename <old> <new>) or use git2r::remote_rename from R.

Examples
