assert_rows: Raises error if predicate is FALSE for any row after applying...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note See Also Examples

Description

Meant for use in a data analysis pipeline, this function applies a function to a data frame that reduces each row to a single value. Then, a predicate function is applied to each of the row reduction values. If any of these predicate applications yield FALSE, this function will raise an error, effectively terminating the pipeline early. If there are no FALSEs, this function will just return the data that it was supplied for further use in later parts of the pipeline.

assert_rows(data, row_reduction_fn, predicate, ...,
  success_fun = success_continue, error_fun = error_stop)

assert_rows_(data, row_reduction_fn, predicate, ..., .dots,
  success_fun = success_continue, error_fun = error_stop)

Arguments

data

A data frame

row_reduction_fn

A function that returns a value for each row of the provided data frame

predicate

A function that returns FALSE when violated

...

Comma separated list of unquoted expressions. Uses dplyr's select to select columns from data.

success_fun

Function to call if assertion passes. Defaults to returning data.

error_fun

Function to call if assertion fails. Defaults to printing a summary of all errors.

.dots

Use assert_rows_() to select columns using standard evaluation.

Details

For examples of possible choices for the success_fun and error_fun parameters, run help("success_and_error_functions")

Value

By default, the data is returned if predicate assertion is TRUE and and error is thrown if not. If a non-default success_fun or error_fun is used, the return values of these function will be returned.

# returns mtcars
assert_rows(mtcars, num_row_NAs, within_bounds(0,2), mpg:carb)

# equivalent using standard evaluation
assert_rows_(mtcars, num_row_NAs, within_bounds(0,2), "mpg:carb")


library(magrittr)                    # for piping operator

mtcars %>%
  assert_rows(rowSums, within_bounds(0,2), vs:am)
  # anything here will run

## Not run: 
mtcars %>%
  assert_rows(rowSums, within_bounds(0,1), vs:am)
  # the assertion is untrue so
  # nothing here will run
## End(Not run)
