translate_tidyclust() will translate_tidyclust a model specification into a code object that is specific to a particular engine (e.g. R package). It translate tidyclust generic parameters to their counterparts.


translate_tidyclust(x, ...)

# S3 method for default
translate_tidyclust(x, engine = x$engine, ...)



A model specification.


Not currently used.


The computational engine for the model (see ?set_engine).


Prints translated code.


translate_tidyclust() produces a template call that lacks the specific argument values (such as data, etc). These are filled in once fit() is called with the specifics of the data for the model. The call may also include tune() arguments if these are in the specification. To handle the tune() arguments, you need to use the tune package. For more information see

It does contain the resolved argument names that are specific to the model fitting function/engine.

This function can be useful when you need to understand how tidyclust goes from a generic model specific to a model fitting function.

Note: this function is used internally and users should only use it to understand what the underlying syntax would be. It should not be used to modify the cluster specification.
