code_to_plan(), plan_to_code(), and plan_to_notebook() together illustrate the relationships between drake plans, R scripts, and R Markdown documents.




A file path to an R script or knitr report.


This feature is easy to break, so there are some rules for your code file:

  1. Stick to assigning a single expression to a single target at a time. For multi-line commands, please enclose the whole command in curly braces. Conversely, compound assignment is not supported (e.g. target_1 <- target_2 <- target_3 <- get_data()).

  2. Once you assign an expression to a variable, do not modify the variable any more. The target/command binding should be permanent.

  3. Keep it simple. Please use the assignment operators rather than assign() and similar functions.
