There are a number of easy ways to avoid illegible code nesting problems in R. In this R tip we will expand upon the above statement with a simple example.
Was enjoying Gabriel’s article Pipes in R Tutorial For Beginners and wanted call attention to a few more pipes in R (not all for beginners).
I have just released some simple RStudio add-ins that are great for creating keyboard shortcuts when working with pipes in R. You can install the add-ins from here (which also includes both installation instructions and use instructions/examples).
There has been some talk of adding native pipe notation to R (for example here, here, and here). And even a tidyeval/rlang pipe here. I think a critical aspect of such an extension would be to treat such a notation as syntactic sugar and not insist such a pipe match […]
This is a note on debugging magrittr pipelines in R using Bizarro Pipe and eager assignment.
In this screencast we demonstrate how to easily and effectively step-debug magrittr/dplyr pipelines in R using wrapr and replyr.
One of the distinctive features of the R platform is how explicit and user controllable everything is. This allows the style of use of R to evolve fairly rapidly. I will discuss this and end with some new notations, methods, and tools I am nominating for inclusion into your view […]
I have just finished and released a free new R video lecture demonstrating how to use the “Bizarro pipe” to debug magrittr pipelines. I think R dplyr users will really enjoy it. Please read on for the link to the video lecture.
R picked up a nifty way to organize sequential calculations in May of 2014: magrittr by Stefan Milton Bache and Hadley Wickham. magrittr is now quite popular and also has become the backbone of current dplyr practice. If you read my last article on assignment carefully you may have noticed […]
