Using Your Local R Environment to Deploy Blockspring Functions

Generate your first Blockspring R Function

In this step you'll generate a starter Blockspring function written in R.

The CLI tool comes with blockspring new, a handy function generator. Pass in your language (R) and your function title to generate a R starter function:

$ blockspring new R "Best function ever"
Creating directory best-function-ever
Creating script file best-function-ever/block.R
Creating config file best-function-ever/blockspring.json

You now have your first Blockspring function. The CLI tool created a new directory for your function populated with the two key files. blockspring.json holds your function's R code and block.R holds your function's configurations. We'll dive deeper into these files in later steps.
