Contributed R Packages

Below is a list of all packages provided by project RVowpalWabbit.

Important note for package binaries: R-Forge provides these binaries only for the most recent version of R, but not for older versions. In order to successfully install the packages provided on R-Forge, you have to switch to the most recent version of R or, alternatively, install from the package sources (.tar.gz).



R interface to the Vowpal Wabbit

  R interface to Vowpal Wabbit fast out-of-core learning system The Vowpal Wabbit (VW) project is a fast out-of-core learning system sponsored by Yahoo! Research and written by John Langford along with a number of contributors. There are two ways to have a fast learning algorithm: (a) start with a slow algorithm and speed it up, or (b) build an intrinsically fast learning algorithm. This project is about approach (b), and it has reached a state where it may be useful to others as a platform for research and experimentation. There are several optimization algorithms available with the baseline being sparse gradient descent (GD) on a loss function (several are available). The code should be easily usable. Its only external dependence is on the Boost library, which is often installed by default. This R package does not include the distributed computing implementation of the cluster/ directory of the upstream sources. Use of the software as a network servie is also not directly supported as the aim is a simpler direct call from R for validation and comparison.

Build status codes

0 - Current: the package is available for download. The corresponding package passed checks on the Linux and Windows platform without ERRORs.
1 - Scheduled for build: the package has been recognized by the build system and provided in the staging area.
2 - Building: the package has been sent to the build machines. It will be built and checked using the latest patched version of R. Note that it is included in a batch of several packages. Thus, this process will take some time to finish.
3 - Failed to build: the package failed to build or did not pass the checks on the Linux and/or Windows platform. It is not made available since it does not meet the policies.
4 - Conflicts: two or more packages of the same name exist. None of them will be built. Maintainers are asked to negotiate further actions.
5 - Offline: the package is not available. The build system may be offline or the package maintainer did not trigger a rebuild (done e.g., via committing to the package repository).

If your package is not shown on this page or not building, then check the build system status report.
