This is stopifnot() but with a twist: it works well as a standalone, replacement for stopifnot() but is also customized for use in validation checks in R Markdown documents where pointblank is loaded. Using stop_if_not() in a code chunk where the validate = TRUE option is set will yield the correct reporting of successes and failures whereas stopifnot() does not.
