tidyeval resource roundup

Updated: 2018-05-19

Though, naturally, the Honorable Professor Doctor Sir Lord General Hadley Wickham’s Programming with dplyr article is the ne plus ultra of getting oneself aquainted with the latest and greatest in tidyeval programming recipes, quoting, and quasiquotation; there are some other resources out there.

After posting a link to Edwin Thoen’s ⭐️ Tidy evaluation, most common actions, I was asked if there were other tidyeval tutorials I knew of. And so, here are some resources I’ve found and tweeted.1

n.b. these are likely not as up-to-date as Programming with dplyr, but I like the visuals— so, they’re here

Ta-da 🎉

If you’ve written and/or found more examples that you think would be helpful to have in here, by all means give me a shout! Actually, a tweet 🐦 (@dataandme) would probably be best…which, I know, is totally tragic.


  1. Yes, I’m just leaving them as tweets, because they already have author names, and screenshots and…y’know what? If you don’t want them in tweet form, go write your own post! (I’m kidding, of course 😉)
