jStat: Advanced Statistics using Javascript

March 23, 2011

(This article was first published on Interpretations of technorealism, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

While 'R' is getting enterprise ready, it's no longer the only open source option for advanced statistical programming. jStat.js is the new kid on the block.

Things in favor of jStat:
  • Based on Javascript, jQuery - future is assured
  • Light-weight
  • Ability to visualize data using flot (jQuery plugin)
Still no match for 'R' yet (complete API documentation is yet to come out), but certainly a bright prospect in application which require basic statistical analysis and data visualization (where 'R' is an overkill).

Possibilities  with jStat.js - check this out

Thinking out loud..
Node.js + jStat.js ...=..=!=..=... RIP 'R' ??
