A Python client to remotely access R statistic package via Rserve

Project description


What It Does

pyRerve is a library for connecting Python to an `R process <>`_ (an excellent statistic package) running `Rserve <>`_ as a RPC connection gateway. Through such a connection variables can be get and set in R from Python, and also R-functions can be called remotely. In contrast to `rpy or rpy2 <>`_ the R process does not have to run on the same machine, it can run on a remote machine and all variable access and function calls will be delegated there through the network.

Furthermore - and this makes everything feel very pythonic - all data structures will automatically be converted from native
R to native Python types and back.
