Read a file from the filesystem and write its content to the Object Database as a loose blob. The method is vectorized and accepts a vector of files to create blobs from.

blob_create(repo = ".", path = NULL, relative = TRUE)

Arguments

repo

The repository where the blob(s) will be written. Can be a bare repository. A git_repository object, or a path to a repository, or NULL. If the repo argument is NULL, the repository is searched for with discover_repository in the current working directory.

path

The file(s) from which the blob will be created.

relative

TRUE if the file(s) from which the blob will be created is relative to the repository's working dir. Default is TRUE.

Value

list of S3 class git_blob objects

Examples

if (FALSE) { ## Initialize a temporary repository path <- tempfile(pattern="git2r-") dir.create(path) repo <- init(path) ## Create blobs from files relative to workdir writeLines("Hello, world!", file.path(path, "example-1.txt")) writeLines("test content", file.path(path, "example-2.txt")) blob_list_1 <- blob_create(repo, c("example-1.txt", "example-2.txt")) ## Create blobs from files not relative to workdir temp_file_1 <- tempfile() temp_file_2 <- tempfile() writeLines("Hello, world!", temp_file_1) writeLines("test content", temp_file_2) blob_list_2 <- blob_create(repo, c(temp_file_1, temp_file_2), relative = FALSE) }
