step_arrange creates a specification of a recipe step that will sort rows using dplyr::arrange().

  role = NA,
  trained = FALSE,
  inputs = NULL,
  skip = FALSE,
  id = rand_id("arrange")

# S3 method for step_arrange
tidy(x, ...)



A recipe object. The step will be added to the sequence of operations for this recipe.


Comma separated list of unquoted variable names. Use desc()`` to sort a variable in descending order. See [dplyr::arrange()] for more details. For the tidy` method, these are not currently used.


Not used by this step since no new variables are created.


A logical to indicate if the quantities for preprocessing have been estimated.


Quosure of values given by ....


A logical. Should the step be skipped when the recipe is baked by bake.recipe()? While all operations are baked when prep.recipe() is run, some operations may not be able to be conducted on new data (e.g. processing the outcome variable(s)). Care should be taken when using skip = TRUE as it may affect the computations for subsequent operations


A character string that is unique to this step to identify it.


A step_arrange object


An updated version of recipe with the new step added to the sequence of existing steps (if any). For the tidy method, a tibble with columns terms which contains the sorting variable(s) or expression(s). The expressions are text representations and are not parsable.


When an object in the user's global environment is referenced in the expression defining the new variable(s), it is a good idea to use quasiquotation (e.g. !!!) to embed the value of the object in the expression (to be portable between sessions). See the examples.


rec <- recipe( ~ ., data = iris) %>% step_arrange(desc(Sepal.Length), 1/Petal.Length) prepped <- prep(rec, training = iris %>% slice(1:75)) tidy(prepped, number = 1)
#> # A tibble: 2 x 2 #> terms id #> <chr> <chr> #> 1 desc(Sepal.Length) arrange_WRZor #> 2 1/Petal.Length arrange_WRZor
library(dplyr) dplyr_train <- iris %>% as_tibble() %>% slice(1:75) %>% dplyr::arrange(desc(Sepal.Length), 1/Petal.Length) rec_train <- bake(prepped, new_data = NULL) all.equal(dplyr_train, rec_train)
#> [1] TRUE
dplyr_test <- iris %>% as_tibble() %>% slice(76:150) %>% dplyr::arrange(desc(Sepal.Length), 1/Petal.Length) rec_test <- bake(prepped, iris %>% slice(76:150)) all.equal(dplyr_test, rec_test)
#> [1] TRUE
# When you have variables/expressions, you can create a # list of symbols with `rlang::syms()`` and splice them in # the call with `!!!`. See sort_vars <- c("Sepal.Length", "Petal.Length") qq_rec <- recipe( ~ ., data = iris) %>% # Embed the `values` object in the call using !!! step_arrange(!!!syms(sort_vars)) %>% prep(training = iris) tidy(qq_rec, number = 1)
#> # A tibble: 2 x 2 #> terms id #> <chr> <chr> #> 1 Sepal.Length arrange_R1u5C #> 2 Petal.Length arrange_R1u5C
