Why I find tidyeval useful

(This article was first published on Econometrics and Free Software, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

First thing’s first: maybe you shouldn’t care about tidyeval. Maybe you don’t need it. If you exclusively work interactively, I don’t think that learning about tidyeval is important. I can only speak for me, and explain to you why I personally find tidyeval useful.
I wanted to write this blog post after reading this twitter thread and specifically this question.
Mara Averick then wrote this blogpost linking to 6 other blog posts that give some tidyeval examples.
