Nerd tweet:

For a month now I’ve had a *really* weird RStudio bug, where *any* dplyr error causes a fatal crash, ending the session (but no crash with same code on command line).

Silver lining is I’ve become a much more careful coder, and now go days without a single error 🤓😇

For the non-nerds:

This is like if your laptop would instantly switch itself off whenever you made a typo, losing all unsaved work.

It’s high-stress but boy does it fix those typos... 😅😅😅

I’ve completely uninstalled & reinstalled dplyr, tidyverse & RStudio itself (including installing an older build of RStudio) and have asked around but no luck.

RStudio remains amazing and everyone should use it — this is almost certainly an extremely weird thing on my machine.
