I have a Julia package on GitHub for which I’d like to include installation instructions. However, the Julia code is in a subdirectory of the repo as this repo includes both a Julia and R version of the code.
I can’t figure out how remotely install the package from the subdirectory. My first pass was
This leads to a 404 error. Is there a way to specify a subdirectory of a repo?
EDIT: I have split up the R and Julia repos so the link above currently is broken.
I don’t have a solution for your problem, but as a workaround, you could
git clone the repository (in the shell) and then in Julia
pkg> add or
pkg> dev the relevant path.
Go here and read using someone elses project:
download and clone the project.
In Julia then:
Also try this it may work:
You can include a package name as the second argument.
Thanks for the suggestions.
I think best practices is going to be split up the repo into an R and Julia implementation. I think it’s a bit sub-optimal to have a user clone a bunch of code they don’t want (i.e. R version) and then muck around with a subdirectory of the repo, rather than just call
should be working, since add subdir functionality by KristofferC · Pull Request #1422 · JuliaLang/Pkg.jl · GitHub
but I haven’t tried it for nested subdirectories. It works on single subdir without further nesting, for me.
The monorepo/subdirectory should be fully supported by the Pkg.jl and the whole package registry by now.
