install_remote( remote, dependencies, upgrade, force, quiet, build, build_opts, build_manual, build_vignettes, repos, type, ... ) add_metadata(pkg_path, meta) remote_download(x, quiet = FALSE) remote_metadata(x, bundle = NULL, source = NULL, sha = NULL) remote_package_name(remote, ...) remote_sha(remote, ...)
Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.
TRUE is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and
NA is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports" and "LinkingTo"
and is the default.
FALSE is shorthand for no dependencies (i.e.
just check this package, not its dependencies).
The value "soft" means the same as
TRUE, "hard" means the same as
You can also specify dependencies from one or more additional fields, common ones include:
Config/Needs/website - for dependencies used in building the pkgdown site.
Config/Needs/coverage for dependencies used in calculating test coverage.
Should package dependencies be upgraded? One of "default", "ask", "always", or "never". "default"
respects the value of the
R_REMOTES_UPGRADE environment variable if set,
and falls back to "ask" if unset. "ask" prompts the user for which out of
date packages to upgrade. For non-interactive sessions "ask" is equivalent
FALSE are also accepted and correspond to
"always" and "never" respectively.
Force installation, even if the remote state has not changed since the previous install.
TRUE, suppress output.
TRUE build the package before installing.
Options to pass to

FALSE, don't build PDF manual ('--no-manual').
FALSE, don't build package vignettes ('--no-build-vignettes').
A character vector giving repositories to use.

It uses the additional S3 generic functions to work. Writing methods for these functions would allow 3rd party packages to define custom remotes.
