Intialize a git repo for drat
This helper function creates a new repository, creates and checks out the default GitHub Pages location (either the ‘gh-pages’ branch or directory ‘docs’) and fills it with the required new paths.
initRepo( name = "drat", basepath = getOption("dratDirectory", "~/git"), location = getOption("dratBranch", "gh-pages") )
||A character variable with the name the new repository, the default is “drat”.|
||A character variable with path to the directory in which the new repository is to be created. The default value is “~/git” and can be overriden via option ‘dratDirectory’.|
||A character variable with the GitHub Pages location: either “gh-pages” indicating a branch of that name, or “docs/” directory in the main branch. The default value can be overridden via the “dratBranch” option.|
