edibble: An R package to encapsulate elements of experimental designs for better planning, management and workflow
I present an R package called edibble that facilitates the design of experiments by encapsulating elements of the experiment in a series of composable functions. This package is an interpretation of "the grammar of experimental designs" by Tanaka (2023) in the R programming language. The main features of the edibble package are demonstrated, illustrating how it can be used to create a wide array of experimental designs. The implemented system aims to encourage cognitive thinking for holistic planning and data management of experiments in a streamlined workflow. This workflow can increase the inherent value of experimental data by reducing potential errors or noise with careful preplanning, as well as, ensuring fit-for-purpose analysis of experimental data.
