Get a glimpse of your data.

This is like a transposed version of print: columns run down the page, and data runs across. This makes it possible to see every column in a data frame. It's a little like str() applied to a data frame but it tries to show you as much data as possible. (And it always shows the underlying data, even when applied to a remote data source.)

Usage
glimpse(x, width = NULL, ...)
Arguments
x

An object to glimpse at.

width

Width of output: defaults to the setting of the option tibble.width (if finite) or the width of the console.

...

Other arguments passed onto individual methods.

Value

x original x is (invisibly) returned, allowing glimpse() to be used within a data pipe line.

S3 methods

glimpse is an S3 generic with a customised method for tbls and data.frames, and a default method that calls str().
