Deprecated in version 0.3.0 (2020-03-06). Deduplication happens automatically before and after the pipeline runs.

tar_deduplicate(
  meta = TRUE,
  progress = TRUE,
  store = targets::tar_config_get("store")
)

Arguments

meta

Logical, whether to deduplicate the meta database file at _targets/meta/meta.

progress

Logical, whether to deduplicate the progress database file at _targets/meta/progress.

store

Character of length 1, path to the targets data store. Defaults to tar_config_get("store"), which in turn defaults to _targets/. When you set this argument, the value of tar_config_get("store") is temporarily changed for the current function call. See tar_config_get() and tar_config_set() for details about how to set the data store path persistently for a project.

Value

Nothing.

Details

Removes duplicated entries in the meta and progress databases in order to lighten storage. These databases are located in the _targets/meta/meta and _targets/meta/progress files, where _targets is the a folder at the project root. No essential data is removed, so this is simply a form of garbage collection.
