conflicted: An Alternative Conflict Resolution Strategy


R's default conflict management system gives the most recently loaded package precedence. This can make it hard to detect conflicts, particularly when they arise because a package update creates ambiguity that did not previously exist. 'conflicted' takes a different approach, making every conflict an error and forcing you to choose which function to use.

Resolving conflicts

To permanently resolve a conflict within a session, use assignment:


filter <- dplyr::filter
