tidySEM provides a ‘tidy’ workflow for conducting, reporting, and plotting structural equation modeling analyses. It does not perform model estimation, but instead allows users to estimate models in a software-agnostic way, using either the free open source R packages
OpenMx, or the commercial closed-source program
Mplus (controlled through the R package
MplusAutomation). The aim of

You can install the development version of
tidySEM from ‘GitHub’ with:
Every user-facing function in the package is documented, and the documentation can be accessed by running
?function_name in the R console, e.g.,
Furthermore, there are three main vignettes, describing the three main tracks of
