Future for modelr?


Caret does not seem to be tidyverse friendly but it is mature.

What is the future status of modelr?




modelr is basically the smallest package I needed to be able to teach modelling in a tidyverse-compatible way. It will continue to exist, but I don’t think it’s likely to see much further development.

@Max recently joined RStudio and is working on turning caret into multiple packages that have a tidy API. You can see his initial work in recipes and rsample.


Thanks a lot! I’ll try out rsample and the recipes.



Great. It would be fantastic to have a tidy (& fast) way to implement some of the chores in ML – selecting the ‘important’ variables etc. – without having to spend time handling lists or extreacting output from results. I look forward to seeing what @Max comes up with!
