Reasons to Use Tidymodels

Roel Hogervorst explains when we may or may not want to use tidymodels versus rolling our own models in R:

When not

you are always using GLM models. (they are very flexible!) it makes no sense to me to go for the extra {parsnip} layer if you are always using the same models. You could still consider using recipes to feature engineer.

– If you are familiar with the kind of data and what models will work on that data. Basically you are an expert on this field and have worked on it for many years. There is no need to experiment.
