tidymodels package is now on
CRAN. Similar to its sister package
tidyverse, it can be used to install and load tidyverse packages related to modeling and analysis. Currently, it installs and attaches
library(tidymodels) #> ── Attaching packages ───────────────────────────────── tidymodels 0.0.1 ── #> ✔ ggplot2 3.0.0 ✔ recipes 0.1.3 #> ✔ tibble 1.4.2 ✔ broom 0.5.0 #> ✔ purrr 0.2.5 ✔ yardstick 0.0.1 #> ✔ dplyr 0.7.6 ✔ infer 0.3.0 #> ✔ rsample 0.0.2 #> ── Conflicts ──────────────────────────────────── tidymodels_conflicts() ── #> ✖ rsample::fill() masks tidyr::fill() #> ✖ dplyr::filter() masks stats::filter() #> ✖ dplyr::lag() masks stats::lag() #> ✖ recipes::step() masks stats::step()
tidymodels also contains a burgeoning list of tagged packages. These can be used to install sets of packages for specific purposes. For example, if you are in need of additional tidy tools for analyzing text data:
tag_attach("text analysis") #> ── Attaching packages ───────────────────────────────── tidymodels 0.0.1 ── #> ✔ tidytext 0.1.9 ✔ keras 2.1.6
These tags will be updated with each version of
tidymodels as new packages are released.
The number of tidyverse modeling package continues to grow. Some packages on the development horizon include:
parsnip: a unified interface to models. This should significantly reduce the amount of syntactical minutia that you’ll need to memorize by having one standardized model function across different packages and by harmonizing the parameter names across models.
dials: tools for tuning parameters.
dialscontains objects and methods for creating and validating tuning parameter values as well as grid search tools. This is designed to work seamlessly with
embed: an add-on package for
recipes. This can be used to efficiently encode high-cardinality categorical predictors using supervised methods such as likelihood encodings and entity embeddings.
modelgenerics: a developer-related tool. This lightweight package can help reduce package dependencies by providing a set of generic methods for classes which are used across packages. For example, if you are creating a new
tidymethod for your model, this package can be used instead of
broom(and its dependencies).
