These functions are wrappers around glue::glue() and glue::glue_data(), which provide a powerful and elegant syntax for interpolating strings. These wrappers provide a small set of the full options. Use the functions directly from glue for more control.

str_glue(..., .sep = "", .envir = parent.frame())

str_glue_data(.x, ..., .sep = "", .envir = parent.frame(), .na = "NA")

Arguments

...

[expressions]
Expressions string(s) to format, multiple inputs are concatenated together before formatting.

.sep

[character(1): ‘""’]
Separator used to separate elements.

.envir

[environment: parent.frame()]
Environment to evaluate each expression in. Expressions are evaluated from left to right. If .x is an environment, the expressions are evaluated in that environment and .envir is ignored.

.x

[listish]
An environment, list or data frame used to lookup values.

.na

[character(1): ‘NA’]
Value to replace NA values with. If NULL missing values are propagated, that is an NA result will cause NA output. Otherwise the value is replaced by the value of .na.

Examples

name <- "Fred" age <- 50 anniversary <- as.Date("1991-10-12") str_glue( "My name is {name}, ", "my age next year is {age + 1}, ", "and my anniversary is {format(anniversary, '%A, %B %d, %Y')}." )
#> My name is Fred, my age next year is 51, and my anniversary is Saturday, October 12, 1991.
# single braces can be inserted by doubling them str_glue("My name is {name}, not {{name}}.")
#> My name is Fred, not {name}.
# You can also used named arguments str_glue( "My name is {name}, ", "and my age next year is {age + 1}.", name = "Joe", age = 40 )
#> My name is Joe, and my age next year is 41.
# `str_glue_data()` is useful in data pipelines mtcars %>% str_glue_data("{rownames(.)} has {hp} hp")
