R is the language of data science which includes a vast repository of packages. These packages appeal to different regions which use R for their data purposes. CRAN has 10,000 packages, making it an ocean of superlative statistical work. There are lots of packages in R, but we will discuss the important one.

There are some mostly used and popular packages which are as follows:

List of R packages

1) tidyr

The word tidyr comes from the word tidy, which means clear. So the tidyr package is used to make the data' tidy'. This package works well with dplyr. This package is an evolution of the reshape2 package.

14) reshape2

This package facilitates flexible reorganization and aggregation of data using melt () and decast () functions.

15) dichromat

The R dichromat package is used to remove Red-Green or Blue-Green contrasts from the colors.

16) digest

The digest package is used for the creation of cryptographic hash objects of R functions.

R allows us to perform classification and regression tasks by providing the caret package. CaretEnsemble is a feature of caret which is used for the combination of different models.

19) e1071

The e1071 library provides useful functions which are essential for data analysis like Naive Bayes, Fourier Transforms, SVMs, Clustering, and other miscellaneous functions.
