Use record() to record a new entry within an existing renv lockfile.

Usage

record(records, lockfile = NULL, project = NULL)

Arguments

records

A list of named records, mapping package names to a definition of their source. See Records for more details.

lockfile

The path to a lockfile. By default, the project lockfile is used.

project

The project directory. If NULL, then the active project will be used. If no project is currently active, then the current working directory is used instead.

Details

This function can be useful when you need to change one or more of the package records within an renv lockfile -- for example, because a recorded package cannot be restored in a particular environment, and you know of a suitable alternative.

Records

Records can be provided either using the remotes short-hand syntax, or by using an R list of entries to record within the lockfile. See ?lockfiles for more information on the structure of a package record.

Examples


if (FALSE) {

# use digest 0.6.22 from package repositories -- different ways
# of specifying the remote. use whichever is most natural
renv::record("digest@0.6.22")
renv::record(list(digest = "0.6.22"))
renv::record(list(digest = "digest@0.6.22"))

# alternatively, provide a full record as a list
digest_record <- list(
  Package = "digest",
  Version = "0.6.22",
  Source  = "Repository",
  Repository = "CRAN"
)

renv::record(list(digest = digest_record))

}
