The goal of rvisidata is to combine the power of Visidata, "A Swiss Army Chainsaw for Data", with
You need to have Visidata installed. Please follow the official installation instructions provided here.
If you already have python3 installed, the easiest way to install it is with
pip3 install visidata.
To verify visidata is installed correctly,
vd --version should print out the installed version.
rvisidata can be installed with devtools from the official GitHub repo:
rvisidata writes the data frame as a csv file to a temporary folder and then loads it with
visidata. Be therefore careful with very large data frames, because the writing process can take a while. It will delete the temporary file after the
visidata session is closed.
I do not claim that this implementation is efficient or very elegant. But it works. Suggestions for making it faster are very welcome.
Right now this tool only opens the data frame and discards any changes you make for two reasons: (1) you should do your data manipulation in
R to have a reproducible analysis workflow and (2) it is easier to implement this way 😇.
