Hop along multiple inputs simultaneously relative to an index


hop_index2() and phop_index() represent the combination of slide2() and pslide() with hop_index(), allowing you to iterate over multiple vectors at once, relative to an .i-ndex with boundaries defined by .starts and .stops.


hop_index2(.x, .y, .i, .starts, .stops, .f, ...)

hop_index2_vec(.x, .y, .i, .starts, .stops, .f, ..., .ptype = NULL)

phop_index(.l, .i, .starts, .stops, .f, ...)

phop_index_vec(.l, .i, .starts, .stops, .f, ..., .ptype = NULL)


.x, .y


Vectors to iterate over. Vectors of size 1 will be recycled.



The index vector that determines the window sizes. It is fairly common to supply a date vector as the index, but not required.

There are 3 restrictions on the index:

  • The size of the index must match the size of .x, they will not be recycled to their common size.

  • The index must be an increasing vector, but duplicate values are allowed.

  • The index cannot have missing values.

.starts, .stops


Vectors of boundary values that make up the windows to bucket .i with. Both .starts and .stops will be recycled to their common size, and that common size will be the size of the result. Both vectors should be the same type as .i. These boundaries are both inclusive, meaning that the slice of .x that will be used in each call to .f is where .i >= start & .i <= stop returns TRUE.


⁠[function / formula]⁠

If a function, it is used as is.

If a formula, e.g. ~ .x + 2, it is converted to a function. There are three ways to refer to the arguments:

  • For a single argument function, use .

  • For a two argument function, use .x and .y

  • For more arguments, use ..1, ..2, ..3 etc

This syntax allows you to create very compact anonymous functions.


Additional arguments passed on to the mapped function.


⁠[vector(0) / NULL]⁠

A prototype corresponding to the type of the output.

If NULL, the default, the output type is determined by computing the common type across the results of the calls to .f.

If supplied, the result of each call to .f will be cast to that type, and the final output will have that type.

If getOption("vctrs.no_guessing") is TRUE, the .ptype must be supplied. This is a way to make production code demand fixed types.



A list of vectors. The length of .l determines the number of arguments that .f will be called with. If .l has names, they will be used as named arguments to .f. Elements of .l with size 1 will be recycled.


A vector fulfilling the following invariants:


  • vec_size(hop_index2(.x, .y, .starts, .stops)) == vec_size_common(.starts, .stops)

  • vec_ptype(hop_index2(.x, .y, .starts, .stops)) == list()


  • vec_size(hop_index2_vec(.x, .y, .starts, .stops)) == vec_size_common(.starts, .stops)

  • vec_size(hop_index2_vec(.x, .y, .starts, .stops)[[1]]) == 1L

  • vec_ptype(hop_index2_vec(.x, .y, .starts, .stops, .ptype = ptype)) == ptype


  • vec_size(phop_index(.l, .starts, .stops)) == vec_size_common(.starts, .stops)

  • vec_ptype(phop_index(.l, .starts, .stops)) == list()


  • vec_size(phop_index_vec(.l, .starts, .stops)) == vec_size_common(.starts, .stops)

  • vec_size(phop_index_vec(.l, .starts, .stops)[[1]]) == 1L

  • vec_ptype(phop_index_vec(.l, .starts, .stops, .ptype = ptype)) == ptype

# Notice that `i` is an irregular index!
x <- 1:5
i <- as.Date("2019-08-15") + c(0:1, 4, 6, 7)

# Manually create starts/stops. They don't have to be equally spaced,
# and they don't have to be the same size as `.x` or `.i`.
starts <- as.Date(c("2019-08-15", "2019-08-18"))
stops <- as.Date(c("2019-08-16", "2019-08-23"))

# The output size is equal to the common size of `.starts` and `.stops`
hop_index2(x, i, i, starts, stops, ~data.frame(x = .x, y = .y))
