R Interface to Python
« on: January 09, 2019, 04:05:18 PM »
The reticulate package provides a comprehensive set of tools for interoperability between Python and R. The package includes facilities for:

reticulated python

    Calling Python from R in a variety of ways including R Markdown, sourcing Python scripts, importing Python modules, and using Python interactively within an R session.

    Translation between R and Python objects (for example, between R and Pandas data frames, or between R matrices and NumPy arrays).

    Flexible binding to different versions of Python including virtual environments and Conda environments.

Reticulate embeds a Python session within your R session, enabling seamless, high-performance interoperability. If you are an R developer that uses Python for some of your work or a member of data science team that uses both languages, reticulate can dramatically streamline your workflow!
