Load user-defined packages, functions, global objects, and settings defined in the target script file (default: _targets.R). This function is for debugging, testing, and prototyping only. It is not recommended for use inside a serious pipeline or to report the results of a serious pipeline.

tar_load_globals(
  envir = parent.frame(),
  script = targets::tar_config_get("script")
)

Arguments

envir

Environment to source the target script (default: _targets.R). Defaults to the calling environment.

script

Character of length 1, path to the target script file that defines the pipeline (_targets.R by default). This path should be either an absolute path or a path relative to the project root where you will call tar_make() and other functions. When tar_make() and friends run the script from the current working directory. If the argument NULL, the setting is not modified. Use tar_config_unset() to delete a setting.

Value

NULL (invisibly).

Details

This function first sources the target script file (default: _targets.R) to loads all user-defined functions, global objects, and settings into the current R process. Then, it loads all the packages defined in tar_option_get("packages") (default: (.packages())) using library() with lib.loc defined in tar_option_get("library") (default: NULL).
