DataSets.jl: A bridge between code and data

07/29/2021, 12:30 PM12:40 PM UTC

In technical computing, getting data into and out of your code can be a pain. Data comes in all shapes, sizes and formats, with many different locations and storage access mechanisms.

DataSets.jl is a new package for describing data declaratively and mapping it neatly into your programs. We aim to make your code portable between data environments and remove the cruft of local paths and data access wrappers which litter technical analysis code.
