recipe bioconductor-dir.expiry

Managing Expiration for Cache Directories






Implements an expiration system for access to versioned directories. Directories that have not been accessed by a registered function within a certain time frame are deleted. This aims to reduce disk usage by eliminating obsolete caches generated by old versions of packages.

depends r-filelock:



You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install bioconductor-dir.expiry

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-dir.expiry

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-dir.expiry

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `bioconductor-dir.expiry/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
