wrapr 2.0.0 is now up on CRAN. This means the := variant of unpack is now easy to install. Please give it a try!
We have some really nifty upcoming enhancements to wrapr unpack/to.
For the next version of the R package wrapr we are going to be removing a number of under-used functions/methods and classes. This update will likely happen in March 2020, and is the start of the wrapr 2.* series. Most of the items being removed are different abstractions for helping […]
wrapr 1.9.6 is now up on CRAN. We unfortunately usually forget to say this. A big thank you to the staff and volunteers at CRAN.

Composing functions and sequencing operations are core programming concepts. Some notable realizations of sequencing or pipelining operations include: Unix’s |-pipe CMS Pipelines. F#‘s forward pipe operator |>. Haskel’s Data.Function & operator. The R magrittr forward pipe. Scikit-learn‘s sklearn.pipeline.Pipeline. The idea is: many important calculations can be considered as a sequence […]
