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

  • Git remotes configured for the active project that are associated with

  • DESCRIPTION file for the active project or the specified package

  • Fixed templates:

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

    • Circle CI:{OWNER}/{PACKAGE}

    • CRAN landing page:{PACKAGE}

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