RcppMsgPack

MsgPack Headers for R

So what is MsgPack?

MessagePack is an efficient binary serialization format. It lets you exchange data among multiple languages like JSON. But it is faster and smaller. Small integers are encoded into a single byte, and typical short strings require only one extra byte in addition to the strings themselves.

Status

MsgPack itself is pretty mature. This package has also been used quite a bit as an optional extension for RcppRedis.

Installation

The package can be installed from CRAN via

install.packages("RcppMsgPack")

or if you prefer non-release development version these can be installed from GitHub via e.g.

remotes::install_github("eddelbuettel/rcppmsgpack")

or maybe just checkout the repository locally.
