I’m writing this email in a hope to have a better understanding, which matrix library is mostly used by the ruby community. Namely:
or something else?
or is there a way to somehow query this, which ruby packages are depending on a given package?
the reason i’m wondering about this as i’m one of the maintainers of a machine learning library (shogun.ml). We already had for a while support for ruby, and we used narray to interface it with Ruby, meaning users could create their vectors and matrices in ruby using NArray and then pass that to a shogun model.
i’m currently working on fixing some of the bugs of this interface and give a general facelift to it, and try to generate a precompiled gem for shogun’s ruby interface and i was just wondering which matrix library should we support as it seems narray (the version we support) is not maintained anymore.
here’s a simple example of how this works (using nmatrix): https://gist.github.com/vigsterkr/48a5f0523528bbab85bec04464ca2b6c
