How to add progress bar inside dplyr chain in R

I like dplyr's "progress_estimated" function but I can't figure out how to get a progress bar to work inside a dplyr chain. I've put a reproducible example with code at the bottom here.

I have a pretty big data.frame like this:

                cdatetime latitude longitude   
1 2013-01-11 06:40:00 CST 49.74697 -93.30951
2 2013-01-12 15:55:00 CST 49.74697 -93.30951 
3 2013-01-07 20:30:00 CST 49.74697 -93.30951 

and I'd like to calculate sunrise times for each date, using the libraries


I can get dplyr's progress_estimated bar to work within a loop, e.g.:

Ugly loop (works)

p <- progress_estimated(nrow(test))

for (i in 1:nrow(test)){
  datetime = as.POSIXct(substr(test$cdatetime[i], 1, 20), tz = "CST6CDT")
  test$sunrise[i] <- sunrise.set(test$latitude[i], test$longitude[i], datetime, "CST6CDT", num.days = 1)[1,1]

but how can I nest it in my function, so I can avoid using a loop?

Prefer to use:

SunriseSet <- function(dataframe, timezone){
  dataframe %>% 
    rowwise() %>% 
    mutate(# calculate the date-time using the correct timezone
      datetime = as.POSIXct(substr(cdatetime, 1, 20), tz = timezone),
      # Get the time of sunrise and sunset on this day, at the county midpoint
      sunrise = sunrise.set(latitude, longitude, datetime, timezone, num.days = 1)[1,1])

How to get a progress bar here?

test2 <- SunriseSet(test, "CST6CDT")

Here's some example data:

test <- data.frame(cdatetime = rep("2013-01-11 06:40:00", 300),
                   latitude = seq(49.74697, 50.04695, 0.001),
                   longitude = seq(-93.30951, -93.27960, 0.0001))


Rather than using rowwise(), perhaps try pairing the map* functions from purrr with progress_estimated(). This answer follows the approach from .

First, wrap your function in another function that updates the progress bar:

SunriseSet <- function(lat, long, date, timezone, num.days, .pb = NULL) {
  if (.pb$i < .pb$n) .pb$tick()$print()
  sunrise.set(lat, long, date, timezone, num.days)

Then, iterate through your inputs with pmap, or pmap_df (to bind the outputs into a dataframe):

pb <- progress_estimated(nrow(test), 0)
test2 <- test %>% 
    sunrise = pmap_df(
        lat = latitude, 
        long = longitude,
        date = as.character(cdatetime)
      timezone = "CST6CDT", num.days = 1, .pb = pb

I dont really like my solution but it works.

print_tick_function <- function(x, p) {

SunriseSet <- function(dataframe, timezone){
  p <- progress_estimated(nrow(dataframe))
  dataframe %>% 
    rowwise() %>% 
    do(print_tick_function(.,p)) %>%
      datetime = as.POSIXct(substr(cdatetime, 1, 20), tz = timezone),
      sunrise = sunrise.set(latitude, longitude, datetime, timezone, num.days = 1)[1,1]
test2 <- SunriseSet(test, "CST6CDT")
