This is a pure Julia implementation of the Apache Arrow data standard. This package provides Julia
AbstractVector objects for referencing data that conforms to the Arrow standard. This allows users to seamlessly interface Arrow formatted data with a great deal of existing Julia code.
Please see this document for a description of the Arrow memory layout.
The package can be installed by typing in the following in a Julia REPL:
julia> using Pkg; Pkg.add(url="https://github.com/apache/arrow", subdir="julia/Arrow", rev="apache-arrow-3.0.0")
or to use the non-official-apache code that will sometimes include bugfix patches between apache releases, you can do:
julia> using Pkg; Pkg.add("Arrow")
This code is officially part of the apache/arrow repository and as such follows the regulated release cadence of the entire project, following standard community voting protocols. The JuliaData/Arrow.jl repository can be viewed as a sort of “dev” or “latest” branch of this code that may release more frequently, but without following official apache release guidelines. The two repositories are synced, however, so any bugfix patches in JuliaData will be upstreamed to apache/arrow for each release.
This implementation supports the 1.0 version of the specification, including support for:
It currently doesn't include support for:
Third-party data formats:
