I’m extremely pleased to announce that the
sergeantpackage is now on CRAN or will be hitting your local CRAN mirror soon.
sergeantprovides JDBC, DBI and
dbplyrinterfaces to Apache Drill. I’ve also wrapped a few goodies into the
dplyrcustom functions that work with Drill and if you have Drill UDFs that don’t work “out of the box” with
dplyrinterface, file an issue and I’ll make a special one for it in the package.
Seems quite useful if you’re working with MapR. H/T R-bloggers
