I am happy to announce that the package
listr is now available from CRAN.
Since the previous post on
version 0.0.1 the
listr package has gained three new functions.
For the pattern I found myself constantly applying:
my_list |> list_bind(everything()) |> list_extract(1)
there is now a short-cut:
my_list |> list_bind_all()
which will save you some typing and lead to more concise code.
Also new in
listr are two functions for checking the type of list elements.
my_list_1 <- list( data.frame(x = 1:5, y = rnorm(5)), data.frame(x = 6:10, y = rnorm(5)) ) my_list_2 <- list( data.frame(x = 1:5, y = rnorm(5)), tibble::tibble(x = 6:10, y = rnorm(5)) ) list_is_same_class(my_list_1)
##  TRUE
##  FALSE
##  TRUE
list_is_same_class() strictly checks whether all elements do have
list_is_compatible_class() will check for overlaps in the
vector returned by
The package is now on CRAN, so using it is just one
After playing a bit with different ways to print lists in R I have for
now postponed the plan to introduce a nicer way to do so.
It will probably be added at some time in the future, but finding a way to
print lists in a concise but useful manner is really hard and for now I would
like to focus on adding useful functions to
Those are already in development and I hope to add some more polish to the
package so I can publish a version 0.1 really soon.
