A new minor release of littler is available now.
It adds or extends a number of things:
added support for drat by adding a new example
check.r scripts now use
getOption("repos") to set the default repos; this works well with drat and multiple repos set via, e.g.
added support for installing Debian binaries as part of a
check.r run, this can be particularly useful for one-command checks as done by some of the Rocker containers;
added support for reproducible builds: if
REPRODUCIBLE_BUILD is defined, no date and time stamp is added to the binary;
added new command-line option
-L|--libpath to expand the library path used for packages;
added support for setting multiple repos from the command-line in the
the manual page was updated with respect to recent additions;
a link to the examples web page was added to the
--usage output display;
See the littler examples page for more details.
The code is available via the GitHub repo, from tarballs off my littler page and the local directory here. A fresh package has gone to the incoming queue at Debian; Michael Rutter will probably have new Ubuntu binaries at CRAN in a few days too.
Comments and suggestions are welcome via the mailing list or issue tracker at the GitHub repo.
