plumbr: Mutable and dynamic data models

The base R data.frame, like any vector, is copied upon modification. This behavior is at odds with that of GUIs and interactive graphics. To rectify this, plumbr provides a mutable, dynamic tabular data model. Models may be chained together to form the complex plumbing necessary for sophisticated graphical interfaces. Also included is a general framework for linking datasets; an typical use case would be a linked brush.
