tibble: Simple Data Frames



Provides a 'tbl_df' class (the 'tibble') with stricter checking and better formatting than the traditional data frame.



The tibble package provides utilities for handling tibbles, where "tibble" is a colloquial term for the S3 tbl_df class. The tbl_df class is a special case of the base data.frame. class, developed in response to lessons learned over many years of data analysis with data frames.

Tibble is the central data structure for the set of packages known as the tidyverse, including dplyr, ggplot2, tidyr, and readr.
