The R package fable provides a collection of commonly used univariate and multivariate time series forecasting models including exponential smoothing via state space models and automatic ARIMA modelling. These models work within the fable framework, which provides the tools to evaluate, visualise, and combine models in a workflow consistent with the tidyverse.


The can install the stable version from CRAN:


You can install the development version from GitHub

# install.packages("remotes")

Installing this software requires a compiler


aus_retail %>%
    State %in% c("New South Wales", "Victoria"),
    Industry == "Department stores"
  ) %>% 
    ets = ETS(box_cox(Turnover, 0.3)),
    arima = ARIMA(log(Turnover)),
    snaive = SNAIVE(Turnover)
  ) %>%
  forecast(h = "2 years") %>% 
  autoplot(filter(aus_retail, year(Month) > 2010), level = NULL)

Learning to forecast with fable

  • The pkgdown site describes all models provided by fable, and how they are used:
  • The forecasting principles and practices online textbook provides an introduction to time series forecasting using fable: (WIP)

Getting help

  • Questions about forecasting can be asked on Cross Validated.

  • Common questions about the fable package are often found on Stack Overflow. You can use this to ask for help if the question isn’t already answered. A minimally reproducible example that describes your issue is the best way to ask for help!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
