Pre-built binaries of X-13ARIMA-SEATS

X-13ARIMA-SEATS is provided by the US Census is both source and prebuild forms.

In order to allow for a streamlined 'zero buttons to press' installation for R users, we created this repository to provide prebuilt versions in standardized and hence scriptable locations. The corresponding x13binary package already uses these. During its installation, it copies the binary version corresponding to the operating system it is used on into a fixed-within-the-package location.

Consequently, other packages such as the R interface to X-13ARIMA-SEATS seasonal (also see demo website) can now depend on x13binary and assume a working binary they can simply deploy directly.

We are of course also offering this repository to other software projects with wrappers for X-13ARIMA-SEATS, and hope that is useful to them too in order to provide their users with easy to deploy binary of X-13ARIMA-SEATS.


The repository is operational for Windows, OS X (Darwin) and Linux (via using statically linked binaries).
