CRAN release: 2023-10-30

Eleventh CRAN release. This release:

poorman 0.2.6

CRAN release: 2022-08-17

Tenth CRAN release.

This update adds the following features:

The following fixes were also implemented:

The CICD pipeline was also fixed such that users can now tests pull requests. The documentation is now built using HTML5.

poorman 0.2.5

CRAN release: 2021-03-28

Ninth CRAN release.

This update has added the following new features:

The following fixes were also implemented:

  • mutate() now successfully evaluates functions defined in the scope of a parent function (#68).
  • select_positions() now works if passed a combination of positive and negative values (#71).
  • transmute() now keeps unnamed columns that it creates (#72).

The following refactorisations took place:

  • When grouping data with group_by(), it will now create an object of class grouped_df and not grouped_data which keeps it consistent with the {dplyr} method name (#70). This should hopefully make transitioning packages from {dplyr} to {poorman} a little easier.

poorman 0.2.4

CRAN release: 2020-11-27

Eighth CRAN release.

This update has added the following new features:

The following fixes were also implemented:

Other general refactorisations and improvements of note:

  • group_by() is now an S3 generic.
  • .default() methods are now .data.frame() methods.
  • get_groups() has been removed in favour of group_vars().
  • set_groups() has been replaced with groups_set() for API consistency.

CRAN release: 2020-07-01

Fifth CRAN release.

The update has added the following new features:

There have also been a lot of refactoring for the internals of the package, particularly focusing on context awareness which allows for quite a few of these features (#40, #41) and grouped operations should now be more consistent. This update of course comes with a host of bug fixes including the renaming of multiple columns when using poorman’s version of tidyselect.

poorman 0.2.0

CRAN release: 2020-05-10

Fourth CRAN release.

This update has added the following new features:

My thanks go to @msberends for their help on these features!

This update also refactors a lot of the code, hence the minor version bump. This includes:

  • More support for “tidyselect” features such as !, :, -, c() and ()
  • Removal of eval(parse(text = ...)
  • Rework of grouped summaries

Finally, 0.2.0 includes many bug fixes:

poorman 0.1.11

CRAN release: 2020-04-22

Third CRAN release.

This update adds the functions count(), tally(), add_count() and add_tally(). In order to achieve these, the functions n() and desc() have also been added. In addition, group_by() can now add additional groups to an already grouped data.frame.

poorman 0.1.10

CRAN release: 2020-04-13

Second CRAN release.

This update adds selection helper functions. See ?select_helpers for more information.

The following bugs have been fixed:

  • mutate() column creations are immediately available, e.g. mtcars %>% mutate(mpg2 = mpg * 2, mpg4 = mpg2 * 2) will create columns named mpg2 and mpg4
  • group_by() groups now persist in selections, e.g. mtcars %>% group_by(am) %>% select(mpg) will return am and mpg columns
  • slice() now duplicates rows, e.g. mtcars %>% slice(2, 2, 2) will return row 2 three times
  • summarize() is now exported
