There are a few ways to do this, but the only one that worked for me was to use Rserve and rconnect. In R, do this:

1 2 3 install.packages("Rserve") library(Rserve) Rserve(debug = FALSE, port=6311, args=NULL)

Then you can connect in Python very easily. Here is a test in Python:

1 2 rcmd = pyRserve.rconnect(host='localhost', port=6311) print(rcmd('rnorm(100)'))
