Overview

dplyr is a grammar of data manipulation, providing a consistent set of verbs that help you solve the most common data manipulation challenges:

These all combine naturally with group_by() which allows you to perform any operation “by group”. You can learn more about them in vignette("dplyr"). As well as these single-table verbs, dplyr also provides a variety of two-table verbs, which you can learn about in vignette("two-table").

dplyr is designed to abstract over how the data is stored. That means as well as working with local data frames, you can also work with remote database tables, using exactly the same R code. Install the dbplyr package then read vignette("databases", package = "dbplyr").

If you are new to dplyr, the best place to start is the data import chapter in R for data science.

Installation

# The easiest way to get dplyr is to install the whole tidyverse:
install.packages("tidyverse")

# Alternatively, install just dplyr:
install.packages("dplyr")

Release candidate

dplyr 0.8.0 will be release on February 1st, you can install the release candidate from GitHub.

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("tidyverse/[email protected]_0.8.0")

Development version

To get a bug fix, or use a feature from the development version, you can install dplyr from GitHub.

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("tidyverse/dplyr")
