job_seek() searches the folders listed in
to find possible candidates that could be added as workbch jobs, or to
recover the location of any such jobs that may have moved. When candidate
folders are found, the user is presented with prompts asking if they would
like to add the folder as a workbch job (or pair it with an existing job
if a match is discovered).
The search process uses a heuristic to discover possible jobs. A folder
is considered a possible candidate if it has a
.Rproj file, a
.workbch file, or a git repository. If
nesting = FALSE (the
default), a directory that is contained within another directory that meets
one of these criteria is not considered a candidate.
As much as possible the
job_seek() function attempts to guess values
for the various parameters. For instance, if there is a git repository that
has an upstream remote (on gitbub, bitbucket or gitlab), it attempts to guess
an appropriate URL for the remote. Similarly, if there is a
sentinel file, it uses the contents of the file to try to match the folder
against a known job and takes the jobname from the sentinel file. Otherwise
it guesses a default value using the folder name.
For parameter values that cannot be guessed from the folder itself, default
values are specified using the
Regardless of the values guessed, the user is prompted either to confirm the guessed value (by hitting enter) or overriding the guess by supplying the value manually.
