Tidying the Confusion Matrix in R

Gary Hutson has a new package for us:

The package aim is to make it easier to convert the outputs of the lists from caret and collapse these down into row-by-row entries, specifically designed for storing the outputs in a database or row by row data frame.

This is something that the CARET library does not have as a default and I have designed this to allow the confusion matrix outputs to be stored in a data frame or database, as many a time we want to track the ML outputs and fits over time to monitor feature slippage and changes in the underlying patterns of the data.

I like the way caret shows the confusion matrix when I’m reviewing result on my own, but I definitely appreciate efforts to make it easier to handle within code—similar to how broom reads linear regression outputs. H/T R-bloggers
