Pipes

Readable Code with Pipes

Introduction R code contain a lot of parentheses in case of a sequence of multiple operations. When you are dealing with complex code, it results in nested function calls which are hard to read and maintain. The magrittr package by Stefan Milton Bache provides pipes enabling us to write R code that is readable. Pipes allow us to clearly express a sequence of multiple operations by: structuring operations from left to right avoiding nested function calls intermediate steps overwriting of original data minimizing creation of local variables Pipes If you are using tidyverse, magrittr will be automatically loaded.
