Version 0.1 of infuser was just released on CRAN.

infuser is a very basic templating engine. It allows you to replace parameters in character strings or text files with a given specified value.

I would often include some SQL code in my R scripts so that I could make parameters in the SQL code variable. But I was always a bit hesitant on the cleanliness of this. It irked me so much that I finally wrote this very simple package. The infuse function allows me to read in a text file (or a character string for that matter) and infuse it with the requested values.

This means that I can now put my SQL code in a separate .sql file :). Load in into a character string with all the desired values in place and use it to my liking. Of course, the same thing can be done for any text file (e.g. an .html).
