I’m working on converting my workflow to use RStudio projects,and tools like the “here” package. (following the great advice from @JennyBryan). I’m putting each project in a separate folder and I’m able to eliminate most of my setwd()’s.
However, I’m not sure how to handle access to a set of about 12 common data files that I use in various combinations in almost all of my projects. These files contain reference data and are updated weekly. I don’t want to copy them into every project. I frequently rerun the projects with the latest reference data. I’m currently using setwd() to read the files from a common folder.
Is there a good “reproducible” way to read from a set of common reference files in multiple projects without using setwd()?
