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)
