Is it possible to change the way the RStudio environment pane displays the value of variables?
My specific use case is that I am working with the
units package. For anyone not familiar with it,
units allows you to assign units to variables and will perform unit conversion and so on when you perform operations on the variables.
library(units) distance_travelled <- units::set_units(100, m) time_taken <- units::set_units(30, s) average_speed <- distance_travelled / time_taken average_speed
average_speed prints to the console as
3.333333 [m/s]. However, in the RStudio environment pane it just displays the variable name and
Object of class units. Is there a way of overriding the default behaviour so the environment pane displays the units and value?
Here's a screenshot for reference.
I'm using Rstudio server 1.2.5033 via the Docker image
Any tips would be much appreciated!
