leaflet 2.0.0

2018-05-10 Barret Schloerke
leaflet 2.0.0 is now on CRAN! The leaflet R package wraps the Leaflet.js JavaScript library, and this release of the R package marks a major upgrade from the outdated Leaflet.js 0.7.x to the current Leaflet.js 1.x (specifically, 1.3.1). Leaflet.js 1.x includes some non-backward-compatible API changes versus 0.7.x. If you’re using only R code to create your Leaflet maps, these changes should not affect you. If you are using custom JavaScript, some changes may be required to your code. Read more →

Arrow and beyond: Collaborating on next generation tools for open source data science

2018-04-19 JJ Allaire
Two years ago, Wes McKinney and Hadley Wickham got together to discuss some of the systems challenges facing the Python and R communities. Data science teams inevitably work with multiple languages and systems, so it’s critical that data flow seamlessly and efficiently between these environments. Wes and Hadley wanted to explore opportunities to collaborate on tools for improving interoperability between Python, R, and external compute and storage systems. This discussion led to the creation of the feather file format, a very fast on-disk format for storing data frames that can be read and written to by multiple languages. Read more →
