JuliaDBMeta is a set of macros to simplify data manipulation with JuliaDB, heavily inspired on DataFramesMeta. It exploit the technical advantages of JuliaDB:
- Fully-type tables with type stable column extraction
- Fast row iteration
- Parallel data storage and parallel computations
Some ideas also come from Query.jl, in particular the curly bracket syntax is from there.
The macro packages Lazy and MacroTools were also very useful in designing this package: the
@apply macro is inspired by the concatenation macros in Lazy.
To install, simply type the following command in the Julia REPL:
