☗ Mikon

Gem Version


Mikon is a flexible data structure for Ruby language, inspired by data.frame of R and Pandas of Python. Its goal is to make it easy to manipulate the real data, apply statistical function to it and visualize the result in Ruby language.

It is compatible with Nyaplot::DataFrame and Statsample::Vector, and most methods the both gem have can be applied to Mikon’s data structure.

Main Features:


Optional Dependencies


$ gem install mikon

If you fail to install nmatrix, try:

$ sudo apt-get install libatlas-base-dev
$ sudo apt-get --purge remove liblapack-dev liblapack3 liblapack3gf
$ gem install nmatrix -- --with-opt-include=/usr/include/atlas

More detailed instructions are available for Mac and Linux.

If you fail to install iruby, try this.


Notebooks created with IRuby:


Initializing DataFrame

ruby require 'mikon' df2 = Mikon::DataFrame.new([{a: 1, b: 2}, {a: 2, b: 3}, {a: 3, b: 4}]) init0

ruby Mikon::DataFrame.new({a: [1,2,3,4], b: [2,3,4,5]}, index: [:a, :b, :c, :d]) init1

ruby df = Mikon::DataFrame.from_csv("~/data.csv") init2

Basic data manipulating

ruby df[:value] init2

ruby df[10..20] init2

ruby df.head(2) head

ruby df.tail(2) tail

Row-based data manipulating

ruby df.select{value > 100} select

ruby df2.map{b+1}.name(:c) map

ruby foo = [] df.each{foo.push(2*a)} p foo #-> [2,4,6]

ruby df.insert_column(:new_value){value * 2} insert_column

ruby df.any?{value >= 100} #-> true df.all?{valu > 1} #-> false

Column-based data manipulating

In most cases column-based manipulating is faster than Row-based.

ruby df2[:b] - df2[:a] column_base0

ruby df.insert_column(:new_value, df[:value]*2) column_base1


ruby df[:value].plot hist

Plotting with Nyaplot

ruby require 'nyaplot' plot = Nyaplot::Plot.new plot.add_with_df(df, :histogram, :value) plot hist

Statistical with Statsample

Mikon::Series is compatible with Statsample::Vector, so most methods of Statsample can be applied to Mikon::Series.

require 'statsample'

Statsample::Analysis.store(Statsample::Test::T) do t_2 = Statsample::Test.t_two_samples_independent(df1:value, df1:new_value) summary t_2 end
