Previously, we described the essentials of R programming and provided quick start guides for importing data into R. The traditional R base functions read.table(), read.delim() and read.csv() import data into R as a data frame. However, the most modern R package readr provides several functions (read_delim(), read_tsv() and read_csv()), which are faster than R base functions and import data into R as a tbl_df (pronounced as “tibble diff”).
tbl_df object is a data frame providing a nicer printing method, useful when working with large data sets.

Some tutorials about dplyr and similar R packages can be found here: Extract Certain Columns of Data Frame; pull R Function of dplyr Package; Print Entire tibble to R Console; dplyr Package Tutorial; The R Programming Language. Summary: This tutorial illustrated how to convert a tibble variable to a vector in R programming. Let me know in the.
Read a delimited file (including csv & tsv) into a tibble Source: R/readdelim.R. Readcsv and readtsv are special cases of the general readdelim. They're useful for reading the most common types of flat file data, comma separated values and tab separated values, respectively. Tbldf object is a data frame providing a nicer printing method, useful when working with large data sets. In this article, we’ll present the tibble R package, developed by Hadley Wickham. The tibble R package provides easy to use functions for creating tibbles, which is a modern rethinking of data frames. Find and drop duplicate elements. The R function duplicated returns a logical vector where TRUE specifies which elements of a vector or data frame are duplicates. Given the following vector: x.
Launch RStudio as described here: Running RStudio and setting up your working directory
To create a new tibble from combining multiple vectors, use the function data_frame():
Compared to the traditional data.frame(), the modern data_frame():
- never converts string as factor
- never changes the names of variables
- never create row names
Note that, if you use the readr package to import your data into R, then you don’t need to do this step. readr imports already data as tbl_df.
To convert a traditional data as a tibble use the function as_data_frame() [in tibble package], which works on data frames, lists, matrices and tables:
Note that, only the first 10 rows are displayed
In the situation where you want to turn a tibble back to a data frame, use the function as.data.frame(my_data).
Tibbles have nice printing method that show only the first 10 rows and all the columns that fit on the screen. This is useful when you work with large data sets.
- When printed, the data type of each column is specified (see below):
: for double : for factor : for character : for logical
It’s possible to change the default printing appearance as follow:
- Change the maximum and the minimum rows to print: options(tibble.print_max = 20, tibble.print_min = 6)
- Always show all rows: options(tibble.print_max = Inf)
- Always show all columns: options(tibble.width = Inf)
- Subsetting a tibble will always return a tibble. You don’t need to use drop = FALSE compared to traditional data.frames.
Create a tibble: data_frame()
Convert your data to a tibble: as_data_frame()
- Change default printing appearance of a tibble: options(tibble.print_max = 20, tibble.print_min = 6)
