These functions are used for testing and establishing a python environment connection with modeltime.gluonts.








  • is_gluonts_activated(): Determines if a GluonTS Environment has been activated during library(modeltime.gluonts).

    • If TRUE, then you should be good to go.

    • If FALSE, then a connection between modeltime.gluonts and your GluonTS Python has not been activated.

  • activate_gluonts(): Attempts to activate a connection between modeltime.gluonts and an associated GluonTS Python Environment using reticulate::use_condaenv(required = TRUE).

    • It first looks for the system environment variable, 'GLUONTS_PYTHON', for a path to the python executable

    • It next looks for a Conda Environment named 'r-gluonts' (this is what most users will have)

  • get_python_env(): Returns the configuration for the python environment that is being discovered using reticulate::py_discover_config().

  • check_gluonts_dependencies(): Checks whether GluonTS required python dependencies are present in the currently activated Python Environment.

  • detect_default_gluonts_env(): Detects if an 'r-gluonts' python environment is available.

    • Returns a tibble containing the

    • Returns NULL if an 'r-gluonts' environment is not detected

  • install_gluonts() - Used to install the python environment needed to run modeltime.gluonts.
