ViewPipeSteps

ViewPipeSteps helps to debug pipe chains in a slightly more elegant fashion. Print/View debugging isn’t sexy, but instead of manually inserting %>% View() after each step, spice it up a bit by, e.g., highlighting the entire chain and calling the viewPipeChain addin:

The View Pipe Chain Steps RStudio addin

Thanks to @batpigandme for the the gif!

Alternatively, you can:

  • Print each pipe step of the selction to the console by using the printPipeChain addin.
  • Print all pipe steps to the console by adding a print_pipe_steps() call to your pipe.

  • Try your luck with the experimental %P>% pipe variant that prints the output of the pipe’s left hand side prior to piping it to the right hand side.
