Create a "handle" for interacting with orderly repositories that are hosted at a different path. This might be useful in cases where you have access to an orderly repository via a network mount or a synchronised folder (e.g., Dropbox, Box, etc). More generally, orderly_remote_path implements an interface used by orderly to abstract over different ways that orderly repositories might be hosted remotely, including over HTTP APIs.

orderly_remote_path(path, name = NULL)

Arguments

path

Path to the orderly store

name

Name of the remote

Value

An orderly_remote_path object, with methods that orderly will use in order to control this remote

See also

orderly_pull_dependencies() and orderly_pull_archive(), which are the primary ways these remote objects are used. See also OrderlyWeb for a system for hosting orderly repositories over an HTTP API.

Examples

# Suppose we have a "remote" orderly repository at some path.
# This might be read-only for you in practice and available via a
# network filesystem or a dropbox folder synced to your computer.
# We'll populate this with a pair of reports:
path_remote <- orderly::orderly_example("demo")
id <- orderly::orderly_run("other", list(nmin = 0),
                           root = path_remote, echo = FALSE)
