The 'tidyverse' is a set of packages that work in harmony because they share common data representations and 'API' design. This package is designed to make it easy to install and load multiple 'tidyverse' packages in a single step. Learn more about the 'tidyverse' at < https://tidyverse.org>.
The tidyverse is a set of packages that work in harmony because they share common data representations and API design. The tidyverse package is designed to make it easy to install and load core packages from the tidyverse in a single command.
If you'd like to learn how to use the tidyverse effectively, the best place to start is R for data science.
install.packages("tidyverse")# Or the development version from GitHub# install.packages("devtools")devtools::install_github("hadley/tidyverse")
library(tidyverse) will load the core tidyverse packages:
You also get a condensed summary of conflicts with other packages you have loaded:
library(tidyverse)#> Loading tidyverse: ggplot2#> Loading tidyverse: tibble#> Loading tidyverse: tidyr#> Loading tidyverse: readr#> Loading tidyverse: purrr#> Loading tidyverse: dplyr#> Conflicts with tidy packages ----------------------------------------------#> filter(): dplyr, stats#> lag(): dplyr, stats
You can see conflicts created later with
library(MASS)#>#> Attaching package: 'MASS'#> The following object is masked from 'package:dplyr':#>#> selecttidyverse_conflicts()#> Conflicts with tidy packages ----------------------------------------------#> filter(): dplyr, stats#> lag(): dplyr, stats#> select(): dplyr, MASS
And you can check that all tidyverse packages are up-to-date with
tidyverse_update()#> The following packages are out of date:#> * broom (0.4.0 -> 0.4.1)#> * DBI (0.4.1 -> 0.5)#> * Rcpp (0.12.6 -> 0.12.7)#> Update now?#>#> 1: Yes#> 2: No
As well as the core tidyverse, installing this package also installs a selection of other packages that you're likely to use frequently, but probably not in every analysis. This includes packages for:
Working with specific types of vectors:
Importing other types of data:
Require modern versions of all packages (#85)
Work with RStudio 1.0 and earlier (#88).
stringr and forcats have been added to the core tidyverse, so they are
reprex joins the tidyverse to make it easier to create reproducible examples (#47)
On attach, tidyverse now makes better use of the horizontal space, printing packages and versions in two columns (#59). It only prints packages that it attaches, not packages that you've already attached. Development versions are highlighted in red.
You can now suppress this startup message by setting
options(tidyverse.quiet = TRUE)
tidyverse_conflicts() now prints all conflicts that involve at least
one tidyverse package; Previously it only omitted any intra-tidyverse
conflicts (#26). I've also tweaked the display of conflicts to hopefully
make it more clear which function is the "winner".
tidyverse_update() now just gives you the code you need to update the
packges, since in general it's not possible to update packages that are
feather is now actually in suggests.
NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
tidyverse_packages() are now exported so you can
more easily see the make up of the tidyverse, and what package versions
you have (#18, #23)
suppressPackageStartupMessages() now suppresses all messages during
suppressPackageStartupMessages() is called automatically
for all tidyverse packages (#27).
