Motivation

The logic to find a project root based on certain criteria is packaged in the rprojroot package. Many projects might not need the full power, and the complexity that comes with it. Meet here:

library(here)
here()
#> [1] "/home/muelleki/git/R/here"
here("DESCRIPTION")
#> [1] "/home/muelleki/git/R/here/DESCRIPTION"
here("R", "here.R")
#> [1] "/home/muelleki/git/R/here/R/here.R"
