Code style [communicate]

(Builds on: Setup)

Code style is simultaneously incredibly important and utterly trivial. It’slikepunctuation: sureyoucanmakedowithoutit, but proper punctuation can sure make things easier to read!

The specific style you follow is not as important as picking a consistent style and sticking to it. When you’re working with others, it’s a really good idea to share a common style so that everyone can easily read and write the code. These readings will introduce you to a common style.

Install styler with install.packages("styler") and make sure you can locate the RStudio addin command for restyling selected code. This will make it very easy to apply the tidyverse style guide automatically.
