These functions create an R project:

• create_package() creates an R package

• create_project() creates a non-package project, i.e. a data analysis project

Both functions can be called on an existing project; you will be asked before any existing files are changed.

create_package(
path,
fields = NULL,
rstudio = rstudioapi::isAvailable(),
check_name = TRUE,
open = interactive()
)

create_project(path, rstudio = rstudioapi::isAvailable(), open = interactive())

## Arguments

path A path. If it exists, it is used. If it does not exist, it is created, provided that the parent path exists. A named list of fields to add to DESCRIPTION, potentially overriding default values. See use_description() for how you can set personalized defaults using package options If TRUE, calls use_rstudio() to make the new package or project into an RStudio Project. If FALSE and a non-package project, a sentinel .here file is placed so that the directory can be recognized as a project by the here or rprojroot packages. Whether to check if the name is valid for CRAN and throw an error if not If TRUE, activates the new project: If RStudio desktop, the package is opened in a new session. If on RStudio server, the current RStudio project is activated. Otherwise, the working directory and active project is changed.

## Value

Path to the newly created project or package, invisibly.
