Vignettes are not built by default when using remotes::install_github, request it explicitly:
remotes::install_github("cpsyctc/CECPfuns", build_vignettes = TRUE)

Subject: [R-pkg-devel] Another newbie question: vignettes not appearing in GitHub hosted package
As ever, my package is https://github.com/cpsyctc/CECPfuns and I am building withing Rstudio 1.4.1103
I am aiming for the package to have fairly comprehensive vignettes and there are four now, but two are very incomplete.
The problem I have may relate to https://github.com/Kenkleinman/clusterPower/issues/113 and to
https://github.com/rstudio/rstudio/issues/1766 or it may not. I have a nasty feeling that I am just looking straight through something obvious.
When I run
browseVignettes(package = "CECPfuns")
within Rstudio working on the package I see the vignettes and I have now got pkgdown working to compile the lovely web site around the package (at https://cecpfuns.psyctc.org/) and I see the vignettes there and they update.
The bizarre thing that is beating me is that when I pull the package down to any machine with
gets the function but no vignettes! Here's an example from my little Pi machine:
Downloading GitHub repo cpsyctc/CECPfuns using HEAD ✔ checking for file ‘/tmp/RtmpPhD1Rg/remotes294e1d1ff9d6/cpsyctc-CECPfuns-ab23518/DESCRIPTION’ (722ms) ─ preparing ‘CECPfuns’:
✔ checking DESCRIPTION meta-information ...
─ installing the package to process help pages ─ checking for LF line-endings in source and make files and shell scripts (13.7s) ─ checking for empty or unneeded directories ─ looking to see if a ‘data/datalist’ file should be added ─ building ‘CECPfuns_0.0.0.9041.tar.gz’
* installing *source* package ‘CECPfuns’ ...
** using staged installation
** byte-compile and prepare package for lazy loading
*** installing help indices
** building package indices
** installing vignettes
** testing if installed package can be loaded from temporary location
** testing if installed package can be loaded from final location
** testing if installed package keeps a record of temporary installation path
* DONE (CECPfuns)
> browseVignettes(package = "CECPfuns")
No vignettes found by browseVignettes(package = "CECPfuns")
I hope someone can see what I'm doing wrong! As ever, TIA,
