The goal of 'importar' is to prevent namespace conflicts by having loaded a lot of R packages. So 'importar' makes it easy to assign a (short) alias to a package or a function.


You can install 'importar' from GitHub with:


or from CRAN with:



This is an example which shows you how to assign a short alias to the 'dplyr' package.

## assign 'd' to 'dplyr' and use 'dplyr' functions by invoking the '$' operator.
import(dplyr, d)
df <- data.frame(a=1:3, b=4:6)
df %>% d$filter(a == 2)

You can also assign an alias to functions to prevent namespace conflicts.

import_fun(dplyr, filter, fil)
df <- data.frame(a=1:3, b=4:6)
fil(df, a == 2)
