Global Options

There are situations when you want to control log printing globally. For those cases, logr has two global options. The option “logr.on” accepts a TRUE or FALSE value, and determines whether the logr log is on or off. The option “logr.notes” also accepts a TRUE or FALSE value, and determines whether to include notes in the log. Both of these global options will override any local settings.

The following code sample demonstrates how to use these options:

# Turn logger off 
options("logr.on" = FALSE)

# Turn logger on and show notes 
options("logr.on" = TRUE, "logr.notes" = TRUE)

# Turn off notes
options("logr.notes" = FALSE)

There is also a global option to turn on the autolog feature. Autolog will automatically print logging entries for many dplyr and tidyr functions. This option can greatly reduce the number of log_print() or put() statements needed to obtain a complete log. The autolog feature can be turned on or off by a parameter on the log_open() statement, or by the “logr.autolog” global option, as follows:

# Turn autolog on
options("logr.autolog" = TRUE)

# Turn autolog off
options("logr.autolog" = FALSE)
