Introducing Python Package --- gower

Today I am so pleased to introduce my first PyPI package (so much easier to submit comparing to CRAN) — gower for calculating gower distance. The core function is originally published by Marcelo Beckmann. There are lots of packages in R that incorporated this method but unfortunately not for Python users. I took this chance to try the whole package-making experience for PyPI and here we go! What is gower distance?

Introducing teamr Package

Today I am so pleased to introduce my first CRAN package for sending formatted messages to Microsoft Teams, teamr. Motivation is simple here. For years I have been using Slack and built many slash commands and apps using incoming webhooks with R, but ever since I started to use Teams, I found that we will have the same needs for communicating with R as well. So with some inspiration from the Python package pymsteams.
