Converting vectors to data frames, and vice versa


enframe() converts named atomic vectors or lists to one- or two-column data frames. For a list, the result will be a nested tibble with a column of type list. For unnamed vectors, the natural sequence is used as name column.

deframe() converts two-column data frames to a named vector or list, using the first column as name and the second column as value. If the input has only one column, an unnamed vector is returned.


enframe(x, name = "name", value = "value")




A vector (for enframe()) or a data frame with one or two columns (for deframe()).

name, value

Names of the columns that store the names and values. If name is NULL, a one-column tibble is returned; value cannot be NULL.


For enframe(), a tibble with two columns (if name is not NULL, the default) or one column (otherwise).

For deframe(), a vector (named or unnamed).


enframe(c(a = 5, b = 7))
enframe(list(one = 1, two = 2:3, three = 4:6))
deframe(tibble(a = 1:3))
deframe(tibble(a = as.list(1:3)))
