Build Status Coverage

This package provides an alternative implementation to ScientificTypes.jl that is lightweight, with a more sensible set of defaults for data science. See


This package is intended for developers of statistical packages that need to dispatch different algorithms depending on scientific types:

import DataScienceTraits as DST

reduction(::DST.Continuous) = sum
reduction(::DST.Categorical) = first

Extensions are provided for third-party types such as CoDa.jl and CategoricalArrays.jl in order to facilitate the integration with existing software stacks.
