forcats 0.3.0

API changes

  • fct_c() now requires explicit splicing with !!! if you have a list of factors that you want to combine. This is consistent with an emerging standards for handling ... throughout the tidyverse.

  • fct_reorder() and fct_reorder2() have renamed fun to .fun to avoid spurious matching of named arguments.

New features

  • All functions that take ... use “tidy” dots: this means that you use can !!! to splice in a list of values, and trailing empty arguments are automatically removed. Additionally, all other arguments gain a . prefix in order to avoid unhelpful matching of named arguments (#110).

  • fct_lump() gains w argument (#70, @wilkox) to weight value frequencies before lumping them together (#68).

Improvements to NA handling

Minor improvements and bug fixes

forcats 0.2.0

New functions

  • as_factor() which works like as.factor() but orders levels by appearance to avoid differences between locales (#39).

  • fct_other() makes it easier to convert selected levels to “other” (#40)

  • fct_relabel() allows programmatic relabeling of levels (#50, @krlmlr).

Minor improvements and bug fixes

  • fct_c() can take either a list of factors or individual factors (#42).

  • fct_drop() gains only argument to restrict which levels are dropped (#69) and no longer adds NA level if not present (#52).

  • fct_recode() is now checks that each new value is of length 1 (#56).

  • fct_relevel() gains after argument so you can also move levels to the end (or any other position you like) (#29).

  • lvls_reorder(), fct_inorder(), and fct_infreq() gain an ordered argument, allowing you to override the existing “ordered” status (#54).
