RcppStreams 0.1.0


The new package RcppStreams arrived on CRAN on Saturday. RcppStreams brings the excellent Streamulus C++ template library for event stream processing to R.

Streamulus, written by Irit Katriel, uses very clever template meta-programming (via Boost Fusion) to implement an embedded domain-specific event language created specifically for event stream processing.

The packages wraps the four existing examples by Irit, all her unit tests and includes a slide deck from a workshop presentation. The framework is quite powerful, and it brings a very promising avenue for (efficient !!) stream event processing to R.

The NEWS file entries follows below:

Changes in version 0.1.0 (2015-01-30)

  • First CRAN release

  • Contains all upstream examples and documentation from Streamulus

  • Added Rcpp Attributes wrapping and minimal manual pages

  • Added Travis CI unit testing

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is also a copy of the DESCRIPTION file for this initial release. More detailed information is on the RcppStreams page page and of course on the Streamulus page.
