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/blog/. If no arguments are given, we retrieve all contributors to the active project since its last (GitHub) release. 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 = NULL, from = NULL, to = NULL)

Arguments

repo_spec

Optional GitHub repo specification in any form accepted for the repo_spec argument of create_from_github() (plain spec or a browser or Git URL). A URL specification is the only way to target a GitHub host other than "github.com", which is the default.

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, in the sense of [from, to]. Examples: "08a560d", "v1.3.0", "2018-02-24T00:13:45Z", "2018-05-01". When from = NULL, to = NULL, we set from to the timestamp of the most recent (GitHub) release. Otherwise, NULL means "no bound".

Value

A character vector of GitHub usernames, invisibly.

Examples

if (FALSE) { # active project, interval = since the last release use_tidy_thanks() # active project, interval = since a specific datetime use_tidy_thanks(from = "2020-07-24T00:13:45Z") # r-lib/usethis, interval = since a certain date use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = "2020-08-01") # r-lib/usethis, up to a specific release use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = NULL, to = "v1.1.0") # r-lib/usethis, since a specific commit, up to a specific date use_tidy_thanks("r-lib/usethis", from = "08a560d", to = "2018-05-14") # r-lib/usethis, but with copy/paste of a browser URL use_tidy_thanks("https://github.com/r-lib/usethis") }
