dplyr: a grammar of data manipulation

dplyr provides a flexible grammar of data manipulation. It's the next iteration of plyr, focused on tools for working with data frames (hence the d in the name).


It has three main goals:

  • Identify the most important data manipulation verbs and make them easy to use from R.

  • Provide blazing fast performance for in-memory data by writing key pieces in C++ (using Rcpp)

  • Use the same interface to work with data no matter where it's stored, whether in a data frame, a data table or database.
