Given the chapters on ggplot, dplyr, tidyr... - it could be nice to mention the whole tidyverse universe too - maybe by including just a link in the seeking help chapter e.g "https://www.tidyverse.org" or before teaching ggplot or after tidyr. Knowing that there is a whole universe of as useful packages can be very nice to see and also is a good resource to learn more about those chapters.

I agree -- perhaps this is best done as a callout box just as a reminder for the instructor to mention it.

At a workshop I helped with we had a couple of cheatsheets floating around and provided participants with this link to print their own: https://www.rstudio.com/resources/cheatsheets/

@crschul Indeed. A link to the RStudio page of cheat sheets would be a welcome addition to the ggplot lesson.

I believe it would also be important to mention that tidyverse packages are fully compatible with each other, helping the user to easily combine commands from the different packages (e.g. dplyr, tidyr, ggplot) into a single statement by using the pipe command %>%

Thank you for your suggestions @crschul and @mantoniou!

Would anyone like to submit one or two PRs to:

  • Add a link to the RStudio page of cheatsheets (for example in the ggplot lesson).
  • Update the "Tip: Tidyverse" box in _episodes_rmd/13-dplyr.Rmd to mention that the tidyverse packages are designed to work gracefully together and with the pipe?

Following up on swcarpentry#719 and swcarpentry#748 

Added a small amount of additional text to denote these packages are designed to work together (from https://tidyverse.tidyverse.org/). Also added a hyperlink for the tidyverse website.

Update the "Tip: Tidyverse" box in _episodes_rmd/13-dplyr.Rmd to mention that the tidyverse packages are designed to work gracefully together and with the pipe?

This has been attempted in #823 (review)

Add a link to the RStudio page of cheatsheets (for example in the ggplot lesson).

This needs to be still tackled.

Feel free to assign the RStudio cheatsheets link embedding to me. I'd like to help. But where is the ggplot lesson located? I'm having a tough time navigating.

Thanks @Phylloxera -- it's in the episodes directory in the repo:
