Provides common functionality for the dynverse packages. dynverse is created to support the development, execution, and benchmarking of trajectory inference methods. For more information, check out dynverse.org.

Manipulation of lists

  • add_class(): Add a class to an object

  • extend_with(): Extend list with more data


  • calculate_distance(): Calculate pairwise distances between two (sparse) matrices

  • calculate_similarity(): Calculate pairwise similarities between two (sparse) matrices

  • calculate_mean(): Calculate a (weighted) mean between vectors or a list of vectors; supports the arithmetic, geometric and harmonic mean

  • project_to_segments(): Project a set of points to to set of segments

Manipulation of matrices

  • expand_matrix(): Add rows and columns to a matrix

Scaling of matrices and vectors

  • scale_uniform(): Rescale data to have a certain center and max range

  • scale_minmax(): Rescale data to a [0, 1] range

  • scale_quantile(): Cut off outer quantiles and rescale to a [0, 1] range

Manipulation of functions

  • inherit_default_params(): Have one function inherit the default parameters from other functions

Manipulation of packages

  • check_packages(): Easily checking whether certain packages are installed

  • install_packages(): Install packages taking into account the remotes of another

Manipulation of vectors

  • random_time_string(): Generates a string very likely to be unique

Tibble helpers

  • list_as_tibble(): Convert a list of lists to a tibble whilst retaining class information

  • tibble_as_list(): Convert a tibble back to a list of lists whilst retaining class information

  • extract_row_to_list(): Extracts one row from a tibble and converts it to a list

  • mapdf(): Apply a function to each row of a data frame

File helpers

  • safe_tempdir(): Create an empty temporary directory and return its path

Assertion helpers

  • %all_in%(): Check whether a vector are all elements of another vector

  • %has_names%(): Check whether an object has certain names

  • is_single_numeric(): Check whether a value is a single numeric

  • is_bounded(): Check whether a value within a certain interval

Package helpers
