Gain insight into your models!

The goal of insight is to provide tools to help an easy, intuitive and consistent accesss to information contained in various models, like model formulas, model terms, information about random effects, data that was used to fit the model or data from response variables. Although there are generic functions to get information and data from models, many modelling-functions from different packages do not provide such methods to access these information. The insight package aims at closing this gap by providing functions that work for (almost) any model.

The syntax of insight mainly revolves around two types of functions. One is to find the names of the things (find_*), and the second is to actually get the things (get_). The things can be the following:

On top of that, the model_info() function runs many checks to help you classify and understand the nature of your model.
