tibbletime: Time-Aware Data Sets In R

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!
