Subject [jira] [Commented] (ARROW-452) [C++/Python] Merge "Feather" file format implementation
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2017 11:37:45 GMT


Wes McKinney commented on ARROW-452:

[~jlafaye] there is no "compete" -- you should think of Feather as a "poor man's Arrow"; it
implements a subset of Arrow but is very limited. This is a true merging of implementations,
which the intent of eventually deprecating the more limited Feather file format and moving
Python/R users to use the more general Arrow file format. Performance with the current Feather
format will be much higher for Python because the integration with pandas has gotten considerably
more development in Arrow in the last few months

using the Arrow IPC format for everything and deprecating the less-flexible Feather format
/ metadata.
