These functions take you to various web pages associated with a project (often, an R package) and return the target URL(s) invisibly. To form these URLs we consult:

  • Git remotes configured for the active project that appear to be hosted on a GitHub deployment

  • DESCRIPTION file for the active project or the specified package. The DESCRIPTION file is sought first in the local package library and then on CRAN.

  • Fixed templates:

    • Travis CI: https://travis-ci.{EXT}/{OWNER}/{PACKAGE}

    • Circle CI: https://circleci.com/gh/{OWNER}/{PACKAGE}

    • CRAN landing page: https://cran.r-project.org/package={PACKAGE}

    • GitHub mirror of a CRAN package: https://github.com/cran/{PACKAGE} Templated URLs aren't checked for existence, so there is no guarantee there will be content at the destination.
