glimpse {dplyr} R Documentation

## Get a glimpse of your data

### Description

glimpse() is like a transposed version of print(): columns run down the page, and data runs across. This makes it possible to see every column in a data frame. It's a little like str() applied to a data frame but it tries to show you as much data as possible. (And it always shows the underlying data, even when applied to a remote data source.)

glimpse() is provided by the pillar package, and re-exported by dplyr. See pillar::glimpse() for more details.

### Value

x original x is (invisibly) returned, allowing glimpse() to be used within a data pipeline.

### Examples

glimpse(mtcars)

# Note that original x is (invisibly) returned, allowing glimpse() to be
# used within a pipeline.
mtcars %>%
glimpse() %>%
select(1:3)

glimpse(starwars)
