Generic R setup files
# An .Renviron file helps keep you safe, by storing secrets in one place that
# you can secure.
# - to open *your* .Renviron file, usethis::edit_r_environ()
# - please make sure that your .Renviron file ends with a newline,
# or R will ignore it
# - this is a minimal file, you will likely want to add your own "stuff"
# - if you need to deal with a firewall, this is the place to define
# your proxy variables
#
# More information: https://whattheyforgot.org/r-startup.html#renviron
#
# GitHub PAT (Personal Access Token)
# - helps automate communication between R and GitHub
# - get a PAT by using usethis::browse_github_pat()
# - you will need your GitHub credentials
# - it's up to you if you want to surround the PAT in quotes
# - this PAT will not work; it's here only for demonstration
#
GITHUB_PAT="cf88960e730f6b89f235e45c31101a8319ee4a49"
# An .Rprofile file helps keep you lazy (or undistracted) by setting
# options every time R starts.
# - to open *your* .Rprofile file, usethis::edit_r_profile()
# - please make sure that your .Rprofile file ends with a newline,
# or R will ignore it
# - some things you want to run all the time, others only when you are
# running R interactiveley
# - this is a minimal file, you will likely want to add your own "stuff"
#
# More information: https://whattheyforgot.org/r-startup.html#rprofile
#
# The .First() function can be useful because if you create variables,
# they "stay" in your function, and do not "pollute" your global
# environment.

# options are used to help define how R "interacts with the world"

# - this the name it uses to sign the email
devtools.name = "Ian Lyttle",
