The 'tidyverse' is awesome, but can take a bit to compile on systems where there are no pre-built binary packages. Methods are provided which use the facilities of the 'usethis' package to snap-in base versions of useful 'tidyverse' functions that are mostly equivalent (some are more complete than others). The base R counterpart functions will likely be slower than the 'tidyverse' equivalents but using them will decrease 'Imports' dependencies.

Use deliberately and with caution.
