Animating Data Transformations III – separate()

We recently have published two blogs on animating data transformations. The first, Animating Data Transformations, illustrated the spread() and gather() functions for going between wide and tall representations of data. The second, Animating Data Transformations II, covered the unnest() function for transforming a list column into a one value

Animating Data Transformations: Part II

In our previous series on Animating Data Transformations, we showed you how to use gganimate to construct an animation which illustrates the process of going between tall and wide representations of data. Today, we will show the same procedure for constructing an animation of the unnest() function.
