Why reinvent the wheel?

You may be curious why I reinvented the wheel when there is rpy2?

The main reason is to drive radian. rpy2 was not suitable because it is missing some key features for running the R REPL. Speaking of compatibility, rchitect has been thoroughly tested on multiple platforms such as Windows, macOS and Linux and we also provide binary wheels for user convenience.

Getting started

from rchitect import *
a = reval("1:5")     # evaluate an R expression in the global environment
b = rcopy(a)         # convert any RObject returned by `reval` to its python type
c = robject(b)       # convert any python object to its R type
d = rcall("sum", c)  # call an R function. Python objects are converted to RObjects implicitly.

FAQ

If rchitect fails to open the R shared library, user should first try to expose the path to R to the PATH vaiable.

In Linux/macOS, you could also export the environment variable R_HOME. For example,

$ export R_HOME=/usr/local/lib/R
$ radian

Sometimes, you may also need to futher specify LD_LIBRARY_PATH if R fails to find some shared libraries,

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:`R RHOME`/lib"

Please also make sure that R was installed with the R shared library libR.so or libR.dylib or libR.dll. On Linux, the flag --enable-R-shlib may be needed to install R from the source.
