Hi RStudio Community,
I often like to datestamp my outputs by prefixing the filename with
YYYY-MM-DD_. Currently, I use the wonderful
here package combined with base r
paste0() which feels bulky. I've also looked into datestamps with the
fs package, but haven't found any solutions there. It would be great to have an optional
prefix = Sys.Date() argument when building filepaths with
here, but this may be beyond the package scope.
I'm wondering whether others have come across this and have other workarounds you like and would recommend.
Thanks for your thoughts!
library(here) #> here() starts at /myfolder # No datestamp here("myfile.txt") #>  "/myfolder/myfile.txt" # Datestamp but with "/" separator here(Sys.Date(), "myfile.txt") #>  "/myfolder/2020-07-20/myfile.txt" # Datestamp but with "_" separator here(paste0(Sys.Date(), "_myfile.txt")) #>  "/myfolder/2020-07-20_myfile.txt"
