magrittr - a Forward-Pipe Operator for R


An extended pipe operator %>% from magrittr package version 1.0.1. Enables archiving artifacts with their chaining code - see examples and vignettes.


lhs %a% rhs



An artifact that will be used as an argument of rhs by %a% operator.


A function call using lhs as an argument by %a% operator.


The extension works as follows, the result of %a% operator is archived together with lhs (as an artifact) and rhs (as a Tag). This allows to present a history of an artifact. This option works only if a default repository is set.
