Shogun is implemented in C++ and offers automatically generated, unified interfaces to Python, Octave, Java / Scala, Ruby, C#, R, Lua. We are currently working on adding more languages including JavaScript, D, and Matlab.

Interface Status
python mature (no known problems)
octave mature (no known problems)
java/scala stable (no known problems)
ruby stable (no known problems)
csharp stable (no known problems)
r beta (most examples work, static calls unavailable)
lua alpha (many examples work, string typemaps are unstable, overloaded methods unavailable)
perl pre-alpha (work in progress quality)
js pre-alpha (work in progress quality)

See our website for examples in all languages.


Shogun is supported under GNU/Linux, MacOSX, FreeBSD, and Windows. See our buildfarm.
