Julia library for working with feather-formatted files

Documentation Build Status

Project Status

NOTE: Feather V1 has been deprecated by Apache Arrow in favor of Feather V2, which is just the Arrow IPC format written to disk. A complete rewrite of Arrow.jl is actively being worked on which will support reading and writing Feather V2.. Currently Feather V2 will not be recognized as a valid feather file by this package.

The package is tested against Julia 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 on Linux, OS X, and Windows.


The package is registered in the General Registry and so can be installed with Pkg.add.

julia> using Pkg
