Get the name of the target currently running.

tar_name(default = "target")

Arguments

default

Character, value to return if tar_name() is called on its own outside a targets pipeline. Having a default lets users run things without tar_make(), which helps peel back layers of code and troubleshoot bugs.

Value

Character of length 1. If called inside a pipeline, tar_name() returns name of the target currently running. Otherwise, the return value is default.
