tibbletime: Time-Aware Data Sets In R

Kevin Feasel



At Business Science, they’ve announced a new R package:

We are excited to announce the release of tibbletime v0.0.2 on CRAN. Loads of new functionality have been added, including:

  • Generic period support: Perform time-based calculations by a number of supported periods using a new ~period formula~.
  • Creating series: Use create_series() to quickly create a tbl_time object initialized with a regular time series.
  • Rolling calculations: Turn any function into a rolling version of itself with rollify().
  • A number of smaller tweaks and helper functions to make life easier.

As we further develop tibbletime, it is becoming clearer that the package is a tool that should be used in addition to the rest of the tidyverseThe combination of the two makes time series analysis in the tidyverse much easier to do!

Check out their demos comparing New York and San Francisco weather.  It looks like it’ll be a useful package.  H/T R-bloggers
