join_node_attrs: Join new node attribute values using a data frame

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/join_node_attrs.R

Description

Join new node attribute values in a left join using a data frame. The use of a left join in this function allows for no possibility that nodes in the graph might be removed after the join.

Usage

1
join_node_attrs(graph, df, by_graph = NULL, by_df = NULL)

Arguments

graph

a graph object of class dgr_graph.

df

the data frame to use for joining.

by_graph

optional specification of the column in the graph's internal node data frame for the left join. If both by_graph and by_df are not provided, then a natural join will occur if there are columns in the graph's ndf and in df with identical names.

by_df

optional specification of the column in df for the left join. If both by_graph and by_df are not provided, then a natural join will occur if there are columns in the graph's ndf and in df with identical names. dgr_graph that is created using create_graph.

Value

a graph object of class dgr_graph.

# tables results in a natural join)
