Derives a list of GitHub usernames, based on who has opened issues or pull requests. Used to populate the acknowledgment section of package release blog posts at https://www.tidyverse.org/articles/. All arguments can potentially be determined from the active project, if the project follows standard practices around the GitHub remote and GitHub releases. Unexported helper functions, releases() and ref_df() can be useful interactively to get a quick look at release tag names and a data frame about refs (defaulting to releases), respectively.

use_tidy_thanks(repo_spec = github_repo_spec(),
  from = releases(repo_spec)[[1]], to = NULL)

Arguments

repo_spec

GitHub repo specification in this form: owner/repo. Default is to infer from Git remotes of active project.

from, to

GitHub ref (i.e., a SHA, tag, or release) or a timestamp in ISO 8601 format, specifying the start or end of the interval of interest. Examples: "08a560d", "v1.3.0", "2018-02-24T00:13:45Z", "2018-05-01". NULL means there is no bound on that end of the interval.

Value

A character vector of GitHub usernames, invisibly.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
## active project, interval = since the last release
use_tidy_thanks()

## active project, interval = since a specific datetime
use_tidy_thanks(from = "2018-02-24T00:13:45Z")

## r-lib/usethis, inteval = since a certain date
use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = "2018-05-01")

## r-lib/usethis, up to a specific release
use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = NULL, to = "v1.3.0")

## r-lib/usethis, since a specific commit, up to a specific date
use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = "08a560d", to = "2018-05-14")
# }
