I've spent a lot of time during the last 4-5 years learning how to use pandas and data.table, and still, I don't feel 100% comfortable. Anyway, since Julia 1 is already here, and data frames are essential packages for data analysis, I was wondering if there is something that pandas and data.table can do but Julia's DataFrames can't?


  • Hi eod, welcome to Software Recommendations! This question does not appear to be about software recommendations, within the scope defined on meta and in the help center. If you think you can edit it to become on-topic, please have a look at the question quality guidelines. – Glorfindel Apr 19 at 9:15
  • Hi Glorfindel, thanks for the comment. Yes, I know, I never knew how to ask a question. Asking a question (or help) is a skill I've never learned. That is why I don't ask very often, but if I do, I do it wrong. Sorry. – eod Apr 19 at 9:34
  • @eod - your question seems to be about specific software comparisons rather than recommendations, i.e. which software should I use to do.... - so I am voting to close. – Steve Barnes Apr 19 at 12:04
  • The one obvious thing that pandas can do that Julia's DataFrames cant is to make use of the vast and rich python ecosystem. – Steve Barnes Apr 19 at 15:11
