lintr provides static code analysis for R. It checks for adherence to a given style, identifying syntax errors and possible semantic issues, then reports them to you so you can take action. Watch lintr in action in the following animation:
lintr is complementary to the
styler package which automatically restyles code, eliminating some of the problems that
lintr can detect.
Install the stable version from CRAN:
Or the development version from GitHub:
# in a project: lintr::use_lintr(type = "tidyverse") usethis::use_github_action("lint-project") lintr::lint_dir() # in a package: lintr::use_lintr(type = "tidyverse") usethis::use_github_action("lint") lintr::lint_package()
You can also run lintr during continuous integration or within your IDE or text editor. See
vignette("editors") for more details.
Without further configuration, this will run the default linters. See
vignette("lintr") to learn how to modify these defaults.
