Functiondepends - usage

library(functiondepends)
# Create environment for loaded functions 
envir <- new.env()
# Search recursively source files
functions <- find_functions(".", envir = envir, recursive = TRUE)

Search for dependencies of function find_functions within parsed functions:

dependency <- find_dependencies("find_functions", envir = envir, in_envir = TRUE)
dependency
#> # A tibble: 2 x 5
#>   Source            SourceRep SourceNamespace Target         TargetInDegree
#>   <chr>                 <int> <chr>           <chr>                   <int>
#> 1 get_function_name         1 user-defined    find_functions              2
#> 2 is_function               1 user-defined    find_functions              2

Note that SourceNamespace column has value user-defined as the functions are searched within source of the package.

Search for all dependencies of find_functions function:

library(ggplot2)
library(dplyr)

dependency <- find_dependencies("find_functions", envir = envir, in_envir = FALSE)
dependency %>% 
  slice_max(SourceRep, n = 10) %>% 
  mutate(Source = reorder(Source, SourceRep)) %>% 
  ggplot(aes(x = Source, y = SourceRep, fill = SourceNamespace)) +
  geom_col() +
  coord_flip() +
  labs(caption = "Top 10 most repeated calls in 'find_functions'.")

Note that name df is often used to store object of type data.frame. df is also a name of F distribution density function from stats package. If you suspect that given function ought not to use a specific package, see the source code of function to check the context. To do so, one can execute find_dependencies function with add_info argument set to TRUE.

library(tidyr)

dependency <- find_dependencies("find_functions", envir = envir, in_envir = FALSE, add_info = TRUE)
dependency %>% 
  filter(SourceNamespace == "stats") %>% 
  select(Source, SourcePosition, SourceContext) %>% 
  unnest(c(SourcePosition, SourceContext)) 
#> # A tibble: 5 x 3
#>   Source SourcePosition SourceContext                                           
#>   <chr>           <dbl> <chr>                                                   
#> 1 df                  6 "    df <- purrr::map_dfr(sourceFiles, ~{"              
#> 2 df                 15 "    source_name <- basename(df$Path)"                  
#> 3 df                 17 "    df <- df %>% dplyr::mutate(Path = stringr::str_rem~
#> 4 df                 18 "    paths <- stringr::str_split(df$Path, \"/|\\\\\\\\\~
#> 5 df                 20 "    tidyr::separate(df, \"Path\", into = paste0(\"Leve~

One can see that indeed df is not a call to function stats::df.

dependency <- find_dependencies(unique(functions$Function), envir = envir, in_envir = FALSE)

See which user-defined functions depend most on other user-defined functions within searched codebase.
