‘tinycodet’ adds some functions to help in your coding etiquette. It primarily focuses on 4 aspects:

  1. Safer decimal (in)equality testing, standard-evaluated alternatives to with() and aes(), and other functions for safer coding.
  2. A new package import system, that attempts to combine the benefits of using a package without attaching, with the benefits of attaching a package.
  3. Extending the string manipulation capabilities of the ‘stringi’ R package.
  4. Reducing repetitive code.

‘tinycodet’ adheres to the tinyverse philosophy (not to be confused with the tidyverse). Besides linking to ‘Rcpp’, ‘tinycodet’ has only one other dependency: ‘stringi’. No other dependencies, thus avoiding “dependency hell”. Most functions in this R-package are vectorized and optimised.

Therefore, to get a quick glimpse of what ‘tinycodet’ provides, I humbly invite you to take a look at the Get Started page on the website (
