Gitlab 11.6 or higher is generally recommended when using gitlabr version 1.1.6 or higher. This gitlabr version uses the gitlab API v4, older versions of Gitlab using API v3 are still supported by gitlabr 0.9, see details section “API version” of the documentation of gl_connection on how to use them. From gitlabr 1.1.6 on API v3 is deprecated and will no longer be tested or maintained, although it is still present in the code. Also within API v4, changes have been made to the gitlab API, most notably for gitlabr, the session endpoint was removed. The versions of gitlabr will always be tested on the corresponding gitlab version, i.e. gitlabr 1.1.6 works best with gitlab 11.6. However, not for every nwe gitlab version there will be a gitlabr version.

Quick Start Example

R code using gitlabr to perform some easy, common gitlab actions can look like this:

```{r eval = FALSE} library(gitlabr)

connect as a fixed user to a gitlab instance

my_gitlab <- gl_connection(“”, private_token = readLines(“secrets/gitlab_token.txt”)) # a function is returned # its first argument is the request (name or function), optionally followed by parameters

my_gitlab(gl_list_projects) # a data_frame is returned, as is always by gitlabr functions

my_gitlab(gl_list_files, project = “testor”)

create a new issue

new_feature_issue <- my_gitlab(gl_new_issue, project = “testor”, “Implement new feature”)

requests via gitlabr always return data_frames, so you can use all common manipulations

require(dplyr) example_user <- my_gitlab(“users”) %>% filter(username == “testuser”)

assign issue to a user

my_gitlab(gl_assign_issue, project = “testor”, new_feature_issue\(iid, assignee_id = example_user\)id)

my_gitlab(gl_list_issues, “testor”, state = “opened”)

close issue

my_gitlab(gl_close_issue, project = “testor”, new_feature_issue\(iid)\)state ```
