filter_all: Filter within a selection of variables


These scoped filtering verbs apply a predicate expression to a selection of variables. The predicate expression should be quoted with all_vars() or any_vars() and should mention the pronoun . to refer to variables.


filter_all(.tbl, .vars_predicate)

filter_if(.tbl, .predicate, .vars_predicate)

filter_at(.tbl, .vars, .vars_predicate)



A tbl object.


A quoted predicate expression as returned by all_vars() or any_vars().


A predicate function to be applied to the columns or a logical vector. The variables for which .predicate is or returns TRUE are selected. This argument is passed to rlang::as_function() and thus supports quosure-style lambda functions and strings representing function names.


A list of columns generated by vars(), a character vector of column names, a numeric vector of column positions, or NULL.


Run this code
# While filter() accepts expressions with specific variables, the
# scoped filter verbs take an expression with the pronoun `.` and
# replicate it over all variables. This expression should be quoted
# with all_vars() or any_vars():

# You can take the intersection of the replicated expressions:
filter_all(mtcars, all_vars(. > 150))

# Or the union:
filter_all(mtcars, any_vars(. > 150))

# You can vary the selection of columns on which to apply the
# predicate. filter_at() takes a vars() specification:
filter_at(mtcars, vars(starts_with("d")), any_vars((. %% 2) == 0))

# And filter_if() selects variables with a predicate function:
filter_if(mtcars, ~ all(floor(.) == .), all_vars(. != 0))
# }
