How to read a .parquet file in R?

Written by Arthur Camberlein | Published on & updated on

To read a .parquet file with R, you can use the arrow package, which provides a way to read and write data in the Arrow format, including Parquet.

For you, I created an example below:

#read the Parquet file into a data.frame
data <- read_parquet("example.parquet")
#display the data.frame

In this example, I used the read_parquet() function to read a Parquet file into a data.frame. The file is assumed to be in the current working directory with the name example.parquet

Note: the arrow package requires that you have the Arrow C++ libraries installed on your system, it's a "little bit" more complex to install than a package (Aka ≠ install.packages())
