We at STATWORX work a lot with R and we often use the same little helper functions within our projects. These functions ease our daily work life by reducing repetitive code parts or by creating overviews of our projects. At first, there was no plan to make a package, but soon I realised, that it will be much easier to share and improve those functions, if they are within a package.

What can it do?
This little helper does the same thing as the "Find in files" search within RStudio. It returns a vector with all files in a given folder that contain the search pattern. In your daily workflow, you would usually use the shortcut key SHIFT+CTRL+F. With
get_files() you can use this functionality within your scripts.
Have a merry advent season!
