OverviewΒΆ

This module should be the right pick for casual and general use. Its aim is to abstract some of the details and provide an intuitive interface to both Python and R programmers.

>>> import rpy2.robjects as robjects

rpy2.robjects is written on top of rpy2.rinterface, and one not satisfied with it could easily build one’s own flavor of a Python-R interface by modifying it (rpy2.rpy_classic is another example of a Python interface built on top of rpy2.rinterface).

Visible differences with RPy-1.x are:

  • no CONVERSION mode in rpy2, the design has made this unnecessary
  • easy to modify or rewrite with an all-Python implementation
