joinery

joinery [joi-nuh-ree]
1. In woodworking, the craft of joining together pieces of wood to produce more complex items.
2. In Java, a data analysis library for joining together pieces of data to produce insight.

quick start

Remember FizzBuzz (of course you do!), well imagine you have just solved the puzzle (well done!) and you have written the results to a comma-delimited file for further analysis. Now you want to know how many times are the strings Fizz, Buzz, and FizzBuzz printed out.

You could answer this question any number of ways, for example you could modify the original program, or reach for Python/pandas, or even (for the sadistic among us, you know who you are) type out a one-liner at the command prompt (probably including cut, sort, and uniq).

Well, now you have one more option. This option is especially good if you are 1) using Java already and 2) may need to integrate your solution with other Java applications in the future.

You can answer this question with joinery.

df.groupBy("value")
  .count()
  .sortBy("-number")
  .head(3)

Printing out the resulting data frame gives us the following table.

  	   value 	number
 0	Fizz    	    27
 1	Buzz    	    14
 2	FizzBuzz	     6

See FizzBuzz.java for the complete code.

utilities

joinery includes some tools to make working with data frames easier. These tools are available by running joinery.DataFrame as an application.

$ java joinery.DataFrame
usage: joinery.DataFrame [compare|plot|show|shell] [csv-file ...]

show

Show displays the tabular data of a data frame in a gui window.

$ java joinery.DataFrame show data.csv

Screenshot of show window

plot

Plot displays the numeric data of a data frame as a chart.

$ java joinery.DataFrame plot data.csv

Screenshot of plot window

shell

Launches an interactive JavaScript shell for working with data frames.
