Print Entire tibble to R Console (2 Examples)
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to print a tibble to the console in the R programming language.
The tutorial is structured as follows:
- Creation of Example Data
- Example 1: Display N Rows of tibble
- Example 2: Display All Rows of tibble
- Video & Further Resources
Here’s the step-by-step process.
Creation of Example Data
install.packages("dplyr") # Install dplyr package library("dplyr") # Load dplyr package
Now, we can convert the iris data frame to a tibble with the as_tibble function of the dplyr package:
my_tibble <- as_tibble(iris) # Create example tibble my_tibble # Print tibble to RStudio console
Table 1: tibble Printed to Console with Default Specifications.
Table 1 illustrates how our example tibble is returned if we print it to the RStudio console – By default, only the first 10 rows of the data are shown.
In the following two examples, I’ll show you how to show a certain number or even all rows of your tibble in the RStudio console. So keep on reading!
Example 1: Display N Rows of tibble
If we want to display a specific amount of rows in the RStudio console, we can use the print() function as follows:
print(my_tibble, n = 20) # Print 20 rows of tibble
Table 2: Printing 20 Rows of tibble.
Table 2 illustrates the RStudio console output of the previous R code. As you can see, we returned the first 20 rows of our tibble to the console by specifying n = 20.
Next; I’ll show you how to print an entire tibble to the console…
Example 2: Display All Rows of tibble
If we want to print our complete tibble to the console, we can simply use the print function in combination with the nrow function. Have a look at the following R syntax:
print(my_tibble, n = nrow(my_tibble)) # Print all rows of tibble
If you execute this code in your RStudio, you will see that all of our tibble is returned in the console.
