Multiple variables can be used in
nesting() by separating them by commas. For situations where there are MANY variables, it might be easier to use the
: idiom like what it is used in
dplyr). I am wondering if this is possible?
For these example data (modified from the
library(dplyr, warn.conflicts = FALSE) df <- tibble( group = c(1:2, 1), item_id = c(1:2, 2), item_name = c("a", "b", "b"), something = c("c", "d", "d"), another = c("z", "y", "X"), value1 = 1:3, value2 = 4:6 )
This works ...
df %>% complete(group, nesting(item_id, item_name, something, another))
But I would like this to work for contiguous variable names (but it does not)
df %>% complete(group, nesting(item_id:another))
Of course, my use case has more than four variables for
Is there something similar to this that is possible in
